What's the size of your working copy?

You mentioned you're using a VPN: if you have the user GUEST active on
your server and you're using SSPI authentication to the repository, then
the authentication data easily can exceed the actual data transferred,
because SSPI always authenticates with the user that has the least
privileges first, then falls back to users with higher privileges. So
the authentication is done multiple times for every single data packet.
--> disable the GUEST user account on your server.
