Why is my hardware VPN download speed being throttled?

I installed a Fortigate 81E for one of my home computers.

When I first speed-tested it I was getting the same as my non-VPN connection (about 950 down)

Now it's a week later, and my VPN download speed is about 500 down, yet my non-VPN connection remains above 900.

 

I'm under the impression that this is not "on" with the FCC. Please advise.

My guess is that some corporate drone believes that all vpn users are using bittorrent to pirate video that comcast owns, and ordered this done to harass the evil pirates.  if i had this problem, I would complain as often and to as many comcast drones asi I could.  I'd also contact them via their facebook page and any other social media platforms they use to let them and other customers, and potential customers know how poorly they treat you. i'd keep bugging them until the problem was fixed.
