It is possible to set up local servers to provide read access and proxy
writes to a master. There is also this:
http://search.cpan.org/~clkao/Pushmi/lib/Pushmi.pm which doesn't seem to
get much press so it's hard to tell how well it would work.

On the other hand, most places get by with access to a single server
over the internet or VPN. The initial checkout will be slow if you do
not have much bandwidth but most other operations are handled
efficiently. It might help to use svn:: protocol. There are some subtle
issues with authentication, reverse dns, and ident lookups that can add
time to http or ssh connections in some situations. And make sure the
central server site has sufficient bandwidth and vpn capacity for the
likely traffic - or move the server to your best-connected location.
