Same here - except it's worse :-)
305 ms to ping my own server (in CA)

"Standard" broadband is 128-256, I'm lucky enough to afford 512/128 (and
that's a frikkin 50USD a month!!!)
And there are bandwidth limits for almost everyone here (unless you pay
extra to cancel them).... which are ridiculously low, like the limit for
256kb internet is just 3gb a month [!]
