    This is actually some kind of research.

    I recently tried to let a friend connect to my PS4 and she was able to just fine. Now she can play on my non-hacked PS4 if she wants to. According to Google Maps she lives about 237.5 kilometers / 147.6 miles (linear distance) from my place. Then I have another friend who lives about 451.8 kilometers / 280.7 miles from my place and both of us were not able to connect to each others console. I tried to establish a connection via PC, PS Vita and PSTV all with the same results.

    Some additional information:
    -my internet connection: phone line 50.000 kbit/s download / 10.000 kbit/s upload
    -friend 1: same as mine
    -friend 2: cable line 150.000 download / 10.000 upload

    I'm curious if some of you tried the same and maybe got better results than me or have some additional information about the Remote Play process I'm not aware of. My guess is that the Remote Play app pings the console a few times (or vice-versa) and if the average ping is too high, then the app will give you an error message stating that it wasn't able to connect to the console.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    Afaik it needs the best connection available.

    I live in Argentina, and the ISP are awful, so I can't even connect to my brother's ps4 (that is 7mts far away), and I can forget about my girlfriend's ps4 (12km away)

    behind a keyboard or a gamepad
    my living room.
    internet upload speeds suck around here, so no way to get remote play working outside my house.
