As slow as it is, have you tried using Tor, you are only pushing pulling PKGBUILD files, not gigabytes of data.
Offtopic; does the AUR or any part of Arch offer .onion services?
I don't think we do, is there actually any interest in this?

I had raised this back in 2015 and the suggestion was shot down pretty hard back then. https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/aur-general/2015-June/030939.html
However, there were some useful suggestions last time around: It may be possible to use the following by itself, or in combination with a VPS as others have mentioned. http://gitolite.com/git-over-proxy.html
Fortunately, I'm no longer in a position where this is necessary for my own work, though I too recall the difficulty in sharing packages with tcp/22 closed/blocked/inaccessible.
I'm hopeful that with the latest changes to AUR and with some new TU's in the group, perhaps some opinions have changed to reconsider this option.
