I have enterprise hosting in Azure with a 1GB uplink i can provide a VPS for this.
Connecting to a Super Peer would help speed it up. They allow download of more data at once. You can hit my super peer, tk2.warmach.info port 80 folder: timekoin

The other factor is the processing power of your computer. Each transaction is validated once downloaded. So a Raspberry Pi is going to take a while to validate the data before it downloads more. CPU power isn't required for TK, but when you are validating the entire blockchain, CPU power can make a difference.
