There is a phone home component that is probably not dealing well with the slower internet connection. When things get like this, the easiest thing to do is disconnect for your internet connection and start up LC and then turn it back after LC is done loading. 

The longer term solution is to generate a bug report on this. All they need to do is give up the phone home for a later date when the connection is stronger. My personal favorite would be to do the internet stuff that is under the hood on a different process that will not affect your performance or experience with LC itself.
