If you have Internet connections on both ends and are using a VPN then
you are probably screwed.  If your 4Mbps is a point-to-point link there
is more you can do.  But you still might be able to gain something by
adjusting the MRU/MTU/Window/etc... of your VPN connection.  But the
latency on Internet links is usually pretty bad.

And is your connection really 4Mbps both up and down stream?

Anyway, I don't think this is a Samba issue but a basic networking
