Right now I'm using wi-fi at a cafe. When I type commands on my local machine in bash, it shows up at the rate I'm typing.

However, when I type commands on an ssh account, it shows up very slowly... there is a noticeable delay between when I press a key and when it appears on the screen.

Why is this? Do keystrokes in ssh only appear after they are echoed back by the server?

Yup. If you use putty, you can try to enable "local echo".
