Very slow performance (<1MB/s over high throughput lines)

I've installed openvpn on my openwrt.
However the connection is very slow and not going over 1MB/s...

I'm connecting from work and have a very good upload of 280Mb/s and at home I got 150Mb/s download.
Hence when copying a file from my pc (at work) over the VPN I would expect to reach around 130Mb/s , but it seems like I'm barely reaching 8Mb/s.

  • Work internet speeds:
    • Upload: 280Mbps
    • Download: 250Mbps
  • Home internet speeds:
    • Upload: 30Mbps
    • Download: 150Mbps
  • VPN speed:
    • Upload: 150Mbps
    • Download: 30Mbps
  • VPN speed:
    • Upload: 8Mbps
    • Download: 8Mbps

Anyone got an idea why this is so slow ?
