It was an issue with the NIC autonegotiation being enabled. I checked it
with the following commands:

ndd -get /dev/hme link_speed
ndd -get /dev/hme link_mode
ndd -get /dev/hme adv_autneg_cap

Then  I  hardcoded entries in the /etc/system file for Link Speed, Link Mode
and AutoNegotiate as following :

set hme:hme_adv_autoneg_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_100T4_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_100fdx_cap=1
set hme:hme_adv_100hdx_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_10fdx_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_10hdx_cap=0

Now I am getting the well desired 300 MB / Minute speed !!

Best regards
