The sender and receiver are just that.

In an ideal world they would be the same but different oss and hardware have subtle differences. Its just to give order of magnitude are they the same and in your case yes. So dont be worried by slight difference.

What isps are you using?

And which routers?

Adding a VPN does add some ovehead.

Fibre TalkTalk (Gateway: Asus-Merlin RT-87U and Dedicated VPN Server: TP-Link Archer C7 v1) ... seems to be the service doing the throttling

Remote Community connection (Gateway & VPN client: TP-Link Archer C7 v2)

Well talk talk are not the best!

However, 10Mbps should sustain a 4Mbps stream without issue.

Assuming all other things are good - like you don't have high latency...

Well to be pedantic, even sustained moderate to high latency (up to say a a few 100 ms) is actually ok. Its jitter that becomes the issue.

However, in the modern internet high latency is usually a function of bandwidth saturation anyway.

So 4Mbps out 10 is a pretty reasonable expectation in not saturating that link with the expected traffic.

BUT for completeness and to prove that latency is not outrageous the OP should download pingplotter from pingplotter.com and start a trace (change interval to 1sec) to an IP on the other side of the link.

Then try and play a 4Mbps file across VPN and see how it affects latency and packet loss.
