On a reasonably slow machine:

$ cd /project/git/git.git && git repack -a -d
$ ls -hl .git/objects/pack/*.pack
-r--r--r-- 1 junio src 44M Mar 26 13:18 

$ cd .. && git --bare init junk && cd junk
$ time git index-pack --strict --stdin <../git.git/.git/objects/pack/*.pack
real    0m13.873s
user    0m21.345s
sys     0m2.248s

That's about 3.2 Mbps?

Compare that with the speed your other side feeds you (or your line
speed could be the limiting factor) and decide how much you value
your data.
