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.
Thanks.

Re: Does Comcast throttle bandwidth?

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.
