Live charts in Oanda MT4 - big lag?

I am using Oanda's MT4 software connected to their demo account server. Is this the quickest service I should be using? It's just that there seems to be a lag of like 91ms usually according to the connection status box on the bottom-right corner of the screen.

I'm based in the UK, but have access to a VPN provider with a U.S. connection if that makes things any easier?

    Never mind - I saw that someone on here recommended TradersWay so I signed up a demo account with them and downloaded their MT4. Lag is only around 17ms and the prices are much much closer to my chosen broker (MarketsWorld).

    great, you figured it out... finding a charting package that closely mimicks your broker.

    Yeah I didn't realise how it could make a big difference using what is essentially the same software but a different broker!
