Maybe you are using compression? Compression is a disadvantage when
the network is fast (gigabit); you just spend CPU time.

Then there is encryption. That can't be turned off. I would love
an option --no-crypto for scp or rsync+ssh on local networks, but
there is none: you are forced to turn to rcp or rsh or nc tricks.
