Effect of Packet Loss on Response Time: USA to China

We are evaluating installation of an MPLS circuit to communicate to our company in China, which is now reached with VPN over the internet.  When pinging China from Boston, the ping  times range from 350ms to 800ms, often with packet loss of 10% - 20% or more.

The MPLS SLAs are such that the latency SLA is for 375ms or less with packet loss of 1%.

I know this is a big improvement, but how can we tangibly understand the effect on performance?  We're running Sharepoint over the network as well as an ERP application.
