Relative to what?
Relative to the center of the Universe - then it depends on the time of year.

The Solar System has at least ten times the speed

My understanding is that Earth moves around the sun at 30 km/sec, and the sun moves around the galaxy at 600 km/sec.
I advise you to verify these figures using your preferred search engine. I recommend using DuckDuckGo, the search that doesn't track you.

Speed of the Earth around the sun: 110,000 kilometers per hour.
Speed of the solar system around the galactic center: 828,000 kilometers per hour.
Took less than 3 seconds to find this out - so which do YOU think is faster.

The Earth travels around the sun at 66,666 mph. The Sun rotates around the center of the Milky Way at between 420,000 and 540,000 mph. It is believed that the Milky Way is traveling or moving around a "local group" of galaxies at 2,237,000 mph.

Earth's average speed in orbit is 18.5 miles/second.
The Solar System's speed in orbit around the center of the Milky Way (known as SgrA*) is 225 miles/second
