Sounds like you have a problem with your server/network hardware or firewall/proftpd settings. FreeBSD out of the box on low-end Intel hardware can easily sustain 6mbps link, which is roughly 3megs/sec. Make sure your harddrive on receiving end can write at least this fast and your network is capable of such transfers. Sometimes faulty switches/cable wires can cause packet loss/delays, causing a bottleneck. It could be a number of things, but I would start with testing your network.
6Mb/s is more like 900KB/s not 3 megs/sec(Which would be 24Mbps)
