Does "as soon as" mean "sharp" in this sentence?

He arrived as soon as 6 o'clock.

According to my opinion, this means "He arrived at 6 o'clock sharp."

    Where did you find this sentence? It's a tad messy without context. The closest meaning would be "as early as". Perhaps you expected a later arrival.

    "He arrived at 6 o'clock sharp" is closer to ""He arrived at precisely 6 o'clock" or "He arrived at six on the dot."
