Low speed on VPN

Just connected to NBN through a FTTN link. Following the Beta test procedure I tested the speed through my ISP directly - around 40 Mbps. Connected through my Asus AC1900 router to VPN Australia, speed peaked at about 3.5 Mbps. I note this may be normal (although somewhat disappointing), however I wonder if:

1. Telstra may be throttling the VPN, and,

2. The Telstra modem may be a limiting factor, would upgrading the modem help?

Any advice appreciated,

Aaaargh. Just noticed I was not on the AUS server but on the P2P server (Netherlands?) which explains the slow speed. AUS server returned a >12 Mbps which is probably OK.
