Does Comcast throttle bandwidth?

I recently changed my online backup provider. In doing so, I’m backing up 3tb of data.I started the backup last Saturday. I noticed yesterday my download speed has dropped from the 1gig to 100. No affect on upload speed. At the moment, I am 90% complete on the backup. Is this normal behavior? Not complaining, just asking.

I have the same feeling as you.  For me my uploads are reduced to 11Mbps when my uploads to google photos and other items can get as high as 40Mbps.

Yes I get similar experience and it has to be due to throttling.  Just had a tech out here and he tried to make it seem like it was the wireless devices that were causing the problem, not the comcast device.  So I connected directly to the comcast modem via RJ45 cable and could get only 1/2 of the speed that I'm paying for.  No wireless involved, just 100 mbps when I should be getting 200.  It goes down from there periodically and then comes up to 200 mbps at times, especially if there is a technician involved.  Hmmmmm....
