You need not fast mirror, you need mirror closer to you. Check here which 1 is closer to you. http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors2.xml

From man make.conf
Quote:
PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS = [rsync options string]
Additional rsync options to be used by emerge --sync.
Defaults to no value.

PORTAGE_RSYNC_OPTS = [rsync options string]
Default rsync options to be used by emerge --sync.
Don't change this unless you know exactly what you're doing!
Defaults to "--recursive --links --safe-links --perms --times --com‐
press --force --whole-file --delete --stats --timeout=180
--exclude='/distfiles' --exclude='/local' --exclude='/packages'"



Try adding
Code:
PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS = " --timeout=nnn"
to make.conf where nnn is your desired timeout value.
