No, not likely. There may be some restriction in the valving system that is from mineral build-up. If you can, rebuild this and you may get a better flow.

Nope.
That is as fast as the water comes out. Check at other taps and see how fast the water comes out...like how many seconds does it take to fill a certain bucket...then compare that with the bathtub using the same bucket. If the bucket fills at the same speed then that is the volume of the water flow.
So it is the plumbing size that is restricting it or the water utility does not put out the water any harder than that. I had a friend that had a house at the end of the service line. Water pressure was 15 PSI on a good day as she was the last house. If everybody was watering their lawns her pressure dropped down to 5 PSI. There is nothing she could do about it as the water utility says it has to supply you with water, not that the water has to be under any pressure. It says so on the back of your water bill or in their mandate...which is posted at their office. That is what you are paying for...by law.

I am miles away on a different water utility and my water pressure is 160PSI...so lots of pressure and volume.

My friend could not run the lawn sprinkler some days as the pressure was that low. I had to install a well pump into their system so to increase the water pressure to 60PSI. which is better but that is what we could do. We could not do anything else because there was no water to work with, so volume was what we got.

They don't normally restrict the water flow on a bathtub faucet. Just the shower. The reason being that when you take a shower, a lot of the water is headed down the drain while you lather up so there is a benefit there. For a bathtub, restricting water flow on the spout just means that it takes longer for you to fill up the tub to the level you want it at.

And most people won't just turn off the water after an inch or two is in the tub simply because it's taking too long to fill. Quite the opposite. They will turn on the water and walk away, knowing it takes 20 minutes before they get enough water in there. So it often defeats the purpose.

Is there a cartridge out there that I can get to increase the flow? I currently are using a ... The restrictor ensures that water does not migrate up to the shower head in the 'tub' mode. ... This is messy, but you could remove the shower valve cartridge and then have some one momentarily turn the water back on.

Unlikely. The usual problem is that the tub is fed by 15mm pipework when it should ideally be larger.
