You stated: "One repository is 183 MBytes but transferred is only 111.89 MBytes

Are you counting the size of the repository on the server, or the size
of the resulting export?

Compression is configurable by the client - if they want to know for
certain that compression is being requested, they should be setting
http-compression = yes in %appdata%\subversion\servers

But how often are they doing this in the first place? After the
initial checkout, they should only be performing updates, which will
only transfer diffs over the wire.
