When I said "on steroids" I meant a scheme similar to NTP, but something run by the wireless companies themselves, not run of the mill NTP.

My NTP server runs at about 2 or 3 uSec level.  It is nothing special.
 Just an $85 Atom board running Linux and a $15 Oncore GPS.   With
effort I could do twice as good.

But if you are talking about Windows PCs using the network to sync to
a server then , yes 1MS is very good.   10MS is typical
