I transfer a Single file using WinSCP FTP on FTP server.
(No other load on FTP server, only single connection)

File size 1.27GB, and It takes approx. 22 secs.

But when I transfer same file using WinSCP SFTP on SFTP server.
(No other load on SFTP server, only single connection)

File Size 1.27GB, and it takes aarox. 15 minutes or 900 secs.
