MRTG just reads the value that you have set using the bandwidth
command in interface configuring mode.  You set this in kilobits per
second.  MRTG will report this value in bytes per second by default.
You can change this (look up: "bits" in config.txt).

If your WAN-links are 128kbps, that means that they are 16kBps.
In other words: the bandwidth settings in your cisco config are set to
32kBps == 256kbps

to change:

log on to the router
conf t
int <whatever>
bandwidth 16
