Does distance from the rest of the cluster matter?

HI,

I was wondering if it is worth setting up a validator in Southern Africa where the latency to Europe is about 130ms and the latency to New York over 220ms?

Will this result in a skipping of votes? or not being able to produce leader blocks in time?

The Datacenter will be able to provide the required bandwidth.

Any thoughts here would be much appreciated.

Thanks
