Yes, this is a very bad latency. There's no way to enable local character
echo, since the client has no idea where the keyboard focus is going
or how the application receiving the keyboard input wants to handle
it. It would be bad if your characters echoed while typing in a
password, for instance.
I've worked successfully with up to 300ms latency, but at that point
in my experience it becomes unpleasant when doing interactive work.
