There is a big difference between link speed and data throughput, so you can have a gigabit link (at layer 2) but only get a 1Mbps data rate at layer 3 due to congestion / rate limiting etc.
This is common on networks. Try and order a 200Mbs link from a telco, they will deliver it over Gigabit Ethernet but rate limit you to the 200Mbps you ordered.
For things like broadband, this is why they have the 20:1 and 50:1 contention ratios for business and personal use respectively.
