Latency between GCI Anchorage and VZB in NY

I've been working diligently to improve performance of interactive applications (Citrix, terminal) that are run by users in our office located in Anchorage, and are served by a managed Internet connection provided by GCI.  Our applications reside in the Buffalo, NY area.

Via MTR, I've seen no or almost-no lost packets, whereas RTT averages around 124ms and at times is as high as 328ms.

I'm looking for feedback from others regarding this RTT, hopefully from customers of GCI.  328ms RTT is high as far as I'm concerned, and it seems like this could be controlled a little better.

If this is status quo for GCI->VZB/MCI connections, then I'd be interested in that feedback as well.

Thanks in advance
