tcp/ip degrades over distance. Your best bet is to connect to a server that's closer to you geographically.

If that's not an option.....it's my understanding that creating a game server is relatively simple. Perhaps you could build one for your friends.

As an alternative, take your computer to a different location and see if your lag times still increase. If they do, you could have an app running in the background slowing your machine down causing the lag.
