Latency of Visible internet

I have a Visible SIM card in a MoFi4500, and a grandfathered Verizon unlimited/unlimited running in a Jetpack 8800L. In running speed tests side by side the VZW is almost always faster, but I expected that. What does surprise me that latency (ping) is always much higher on Visible.

Typically, ping on VZW may be around 30ms, while in the same location it will run around 150ms on SIM.

Wondering if this is common or just something in my setup?

I think that is normal for Visible. Latency is much higher than other services. I just tried it a few times on my phone and got 135ms.

Yesterday my Visible phone was giving ping times of 300-400 ms. Good thing I wasn't playing any real-time games!
