What is your connection specs? which direction is the transfer?  Are you getting data from external sources or are you uploading data to an external source?
Where are you transferring data from or transferring data to could make a difference as well.

300Mb (Megabits) or 300MB(MegaBytes)?

Please note that if is 300Mb then it is 38MB so if you have site to site connection over 40+ Mb connection, it is possible.

And what is the link speed between the sites?

Also, is there a WAN accelerator on each site?

I would try to copy a large file from site to site and see if you get the same result.

There are many different connections.
T1/E1 1.5Mb/sec
T3
DS1 1.5 Mb/sec
DS3 45 Mb/Sec

OC
etc.
Then you have the Async DSL, ADS, IDSL, FIOS, etc.
What are the distances between the location from and to which you are transferring.
This might be a POINT TO POINT LINK for the organization.

Fiber connections.

If you're worknig at a large corporation or in higher education, you might just have those speeds.  I had a 1 Gb connection on Internet2 for several years at a previous employer.  It was limited to 1 Gb only because my network card and the LAN it was on was gigabit.  I sure the main link was 10 Gig when they first installed it.  They had multiple Gigabit links between buildings.

You could really do a lot with those speeds.  If only the US Telcos had upgraded when they were given those tax breaks, we wouldn't be about a decade behind trying to play catchup.

Then you probably have multiple 1Gb or single 10Gb.
