It takes about 120 ms for the signal to go one way between you and the satellite so the minimum possible latency to ping the satellite is about 1/4 of a second and the minimum possible latency to ping something on the ground is about 1/2 of a second. Realistically you can expect times more like 700 ms.

Latency is not that important for non-interactive applications (eg streaming video). With the satellite connection you are trading latency away to get bandwidth, so, stream away...
