My hosted server is probably throttling my connections to it

cn flag

I have some big files I want to download from the hosted server to my personal computer.

I've tried using scp and a python script to share a file via HTTP, and both of these systems share the file at a stable rate of 1MiB/s no matter if the server is idle or fully stressed.

I've used Ookla's speedtest to see whether that's the actual limit of the server, and ended up getting ~600mbps with it (check the output here).

Have you seen anything like this or have any idea of what I should do so that I can work at full performance? is this a configuration thing?

Most providers have some kind of throttling.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
