Default Speed of and speeding up sshfs

Currently, I'm using sshfs to mount the home directory from my FreeBSD box on my MacBook Pro. It works quite well even when I'm on an external network. I can even listen to music and watch some videos that are on my box with good speed on an external network. On my home network, it's no issue at all. What I'd really like to know is if there's a way of speeding up sshfs, even though I'm quite happy with performance now. Is speed dependent upon the network connection speed, you know T1, T3, cable or is distance a factor as well? (I ask because of weird experiences.)

On another note, how does an Icecast stream work? I was considering setting one up, instead of accessing my music the way I am via sshfs. Can you change songs and such from the client or is that done server side? Would it be more efficient than my current method?

Distance maters, but only at long distances, otherwise you won't notice

Lol, I'll be two to three hours away from home when I'm at college starting in the fall. It's only two or three states away, so I guess distance is negligible.
