comment I have a firewall that supports 1Gbit ethernet ports but 1.4Gbit of traffic, can I make use of a 10Gbit pipe from the router in this case?
And the datacenter is going to have to be willing to work with you on that. When they are telling you that they will deliver you a 10Gb connection they are probably thinking that means a single fiber drop.

Actually if your firewall only supports 1Gb links then you'll need to use 2 of them in an aggregate with the router. This will give you a 2gb link to the router. May not be overkill but if you're not pushing more than 1Gb of traffic then doing this isn't going to buy you much other than complexity and purhaps some additional cost.

1.4Gbit of traffic as reported by the vendor? And exactly how many firewall rules do you think they were doing when they got that number? If price is a driving factor the price difference between a 1Gb and 10Gb port isn't worth the theoretical 400Mb of throughput that it will give you.

comment OpenVPN Site2Site using PFSense
It's unclear if your ping and traceroute tests are from the client machines on the LAN or from the pfSense itself. If the tunnels are up and you can ping each side from the other pfSense box then I think pings and traceroutes from the client machines starting with the local gateway and working your way towards the other client machines in both directions will show you where the issue is. It could be an issue with a default gateway on the client machines for instance. But the routing tables all look correct at first glance to me.
