Nothing you can really do about that. If the db is large it is just going to take time. It may be better to solit the db up before doing it but that is really your preference.

The preferred option is to bring the DR server to the main office first, then seed it and move the server.
If that isn't possible, then my preferred way of doing it is to create a new database, add it to the DAG and let it sync. As it is an empty database it will sync very quickly.
Then move the mailboxes in to the database slowly.

I have never had a successful seed of a remote database over a WAN connection less than 60mb. As you are saying it is a slow link, I don't think you will either.

The other option is to manually seed the database.

However there is no way you will be able to seed an already production database.
