Definition of broadband

We are staying in a Residence Inn for a while, and they claim to have high-speed internet in each room.  They are accomplishing this by making a 802.11b network available to all the rooms.

Is there a minimum definition of what can be considered high-speed internet connection?  This network connection is pretty slow.  The ping times from here to, are in the 1000 - 2000 ms range, which is pretty poor.

The network is managed by the GoldenTree Asset Management company.  It looks like they are running a proxy server and this is probably causing the delay.  For web traffic they are running squid.
