Have you confirmed that the network is in fact the bottleneck, and not
the CPU/RAM/disk of the server itself?

Doing the import local to the server, especially if you use file:///
or svn|http://127.0.0.1 (instead of the actual hostname) should
eliminate the network traffic.

It costs you nothing but a little time to try for yourself though.
