This was a big issue for me too. Google Compute Engine seems to have no throttling like AWS does, or at least it's a much higher cap. On an n1-standard-1 I routinely get 250+ MB/s, and near 1 GB/s for n1-standard-4 and larger. The only high bandwidth AWS instances I've found are the few expensive ones that spec 10 Gbit.

According to this page, you can get ~14Gbit networking on Google Cloud's n1-standard-8
