I don't want to give folks the impression that latency and bandwidth are fundamentally related, but yes latency is important for reasons you state and others.  But I still hold that calling pptp "secure" is a bit squishy.  Beside the point for sure.  And no, the feds can't crack everything.  Mostly they don't need to as msft and others feed it directly.  Then there's backdoors and everything Snowden showed us.  If that doesn't work or is too expensive, just write laws that make strong encryption illegal.  Anyway, when it comes to internet for places that otherwise wouldn't have it, indeed 500-600ms rtt would be horrible, but I'd guess not necessarily the show stopper that the required transmit power of devices would be.  (On that, however, I'm no expert.)

That's what the NSA wants people to believe.
