Work around for Remote user – slow Internet at office

Hi, hope this is the correct part of the forum to ask this question. This is the situation: Small business ( location 1) with 12 users , 1 NAS with shared files, the location of the office can only get 3.5mb internet, quite slow. The MD of the company has VPN access to the network and has a 50mb connection at home (location 2) . He often uses large files and finds that the VPN connection is very slow to access stuff at location 1 I can see the bottleneck is the 3.5mb connection at location 1. How can I improve the current setup?
  1. No Fibre and going down the leased line route and upgrading the internet at location 1 is too expensive.
  2. I thought about having a cloud sync of the data on the NAS so the MD when at home on his 50MB connection can pull down files much quicker. What I don't want to do is have to have a local copy of all the NAS data from location 1 on his laptop.
  3. Maybe it would be better for the MD to have a workstation at home with a dropbox account syncing all the data off the NAS onto his local workstation machine.
Any advice would be great.
