MPLS acceptable latency?

Acceptable from a technical standpoint (in that stuff works) or acceptable
from an expected service standpoint?

In the case of the former, MPLS can run over really high latencies, so
you're nowhere near the limit.

For the latter, 85ms would be highly unacceptable to me for a circuit to a
site that's so close.  I would think your traffic is either being routed
really, really badly or their circuits are way over-subscribed.
