Is that bits or bytes? In either case, that's quite slow. Over a
single Gb link I've been able to get around 850 megabit of throughput
on the initial sync.
(RAID 5, 10K RPM SAS disks)

You have a bottle-neck somewhere; I doubt it's in DRBD. Have you
verified that your disks and / or network can achieve any more
throughput than you describe? The DRBD docs include some basic disk
throughput tests. iperf is great for testing network throughput.
