Inbound Data Transfer Into Droplet

i need to move my project from AWS to Digital ocean which about 6-7 GB of data and i have already made a droplet on DO with ubuntu installed in it, now the thing is i have fired “wget” command to transfer a zip file containing all data on AWS EC2 instance to DO Droplet, i have a 2 core 40$/Month droplet but the data transfer is painfully slow at 200KBPS, can i know the reason ? and what about the data transfer charges is inbound data transfer included in the given bandwidth of droplet cost or its billed separately?
