This is not normal. Droplets are connected via 1Gbps network connections on each hypervisor. To check whether this is an issue with your droplet or with the connection between your location and your droplet I’d recommend installing “speedtest-cli” on your droplet and running a test. If you continue seeing slow speeds you should open a support ticket so we can investigate.
