FreeBSD smbfs horribly slow

Googling on this subject, I found:

I am on 10.2-STABLE and using FreeBSD as a client to any share continues to
be very slow.

The share is mounted through mount_smbfs. I tried smbnetfs (fuse) and it is
just a tiny bit better but doesn't compare to other clients (linux or win)
when writing/reading files

It gets even worse if an application is doing operations with variable size
records inside a data file on the share.

Does anyone have any advice to improve this?
