Some testing my group has done (I don't have exact figures here) showed
that for us the biggest issue seems to be network latency. If the ping
times between the server and client are short, you may see less of a
difference. The round-trip ping times between some of our offices is
about 500ms. For checkouts, we see svn:// about 2-3 times faster than
http://. We see very little difference when accessing the repository
from the local LAN. 'svn ls' over http:// is excruciatingly slow, never
taking less than 10 seconds to even get a response back. With svn:// it
takes maybe 2 seconds.

It's a dilemma for us, because we need the security that http:// gives
us, but want the speed of svn://. The good news as that svn over http://
is still much faster than the version control system we replaced, so I
can't really complain!
