It clearly depends on distance.  The hard limit here is speed of light.  So the 
best theoretical latency between, say, New York and L.A. is 30ms round-trip.  
In practice, if you're seeing double that (60ms), you're doing well, since the 
fiber isn't a straight line and each hop adds a little latency of its own.
