I live in eastern Canada and my cousin lives in New Zealand. We tried to play a bit of Minecraft but it just wasn't happening due to terrible connection issues. She was quick to blame her internet as she's on ADSL but even if she upgrades to a much faster connection are we going to be able to connect reliably or is it just not really likely that we'll have a playable connection across half the globe? Anyone have much experience with this?

The internet is a series of tubes, and I don't think the tubes are long enough to travel across the ocean.

My main server used to use a host in the UK despite everyone on the server living in the US and Canada. I think your best bet would be for your cousin to find a host they can reliably connect to and then you trying to join in as well.
