If the link is Internet, then by all means use the links above.  If the link is WAN or private network then setup FTP on one end and then transfer a file via FTP to see the transfer speed.

Other things that could affect slow transfer speeds are as follows:

1.  Anti-virus:  Ensure to exclude the folder copied from as well as on the remote PC, the folder copied to
2. How are you copying (i.e. Windows Explorer, DOS script, etc)
3. What are the sizes of the files being copied

I suggest you try Robocopy as it is very good but it can also provide logs as well as pickup where it left off if the transfer is interrupted.

online bandwidth calculator http://www.ibeast.com/content/tools/band-calc.asp
the following site says that 1 Terabyte need to 3 hours on 1Gbps (not 1GBps)
B = Bytes     b = bits , 1 byte = 8 bits ,  to convert from bytes to bits you should use the following :
bytes / 8 =  1 bits
this is an online covertor for that http://www.checkyourmath.com/convert/data_rates/per_second/gigabits_gigabytes_per_second.php
thanks , regards

Actually all are image files stored in hierarchical folder structure. currently we are using a tool to copy which is giving 6mb/s. we tried using windows copy and paste. even then it is giving around same speed.
