Check your downstream bandwidth, check his upstream bandwidth. If there's
space in both of those, then I would look at altering your TCP window size.

Regarding streaming, I don't think that will produce anything significantly
better; you still have bytes on his end that need to get to your end. What
I think will happen is that you would get either reduced video quality or
you would get lags and/or dropouts.
