Vytautas broke down what Ping does.
so a High ping would mean it took more seconds to reach the server slower. 83ms (mili seconds)
A Low ping means it took less time to reach the server meaning a faster connection.
41ms is half the time then the high ping meaning this will work double the speed then the first one.

Technically speaking a ping is a packet of data being sent from one machine to the other (client to server etc) and the other side gives a feedback packet data. This gives you something called latency which is the time it takes for the packet to make a round trip and it is usually referred to as PING.
So once more, since many many people get this wrong:
Latency - the round trip of the packet in the system (server to client and client to server) and is measured in ms usually.
Ping - a utility that sends packets with request of response and gives a result in ms (Latency)

It's the delay between your pc and the server. Low ping is best.
