Bandwidth shaping/capping issue on my Comcast business line

 I am paying for a 100/20 business connection and while I have no issues getting those speeds from speedtests/cloud providers/etc anytime I try to directly transfer data to my parents and/or friends my bandwidth is cut in half. This only seems to happen to places that I have transfered a bunch of data too/from in the past. It has gotten to the point where it's faster for me to send data via an aws instance in Ireland than it is to go across the country. (Forgive the formatting below)

 

[testing@speed ~]$ # My parents fios connection (have xfered a bunch in the past)
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file parents-fios:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 1.3MB/s 03:05

 

[testing@speed ~]$ # A 2GB friend fiber connection in nyc (have xfered a bunch in the past)
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file nyc:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 1.4MB/s 02:58

 

[testing@speed ~]$ # 1G Fios Friend
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file friend-fios:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 2.8MB/s 01:27

 

[testing@speed ~]$ # Azure east instance
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file azure-east:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 2.7MB/s 01:31


[testing@speed ~]$ # AWS Canada Central
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file aws-ca-central-1:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 2.8MB/s 01:26


[testing@speed ~]$ # AWS Ireland
[testing@speed ~]$ scp 256MB.file aws-eu-west-1:~
256MB.file 100% 244MB 2.5MB/s 01:39


[testing@speed ~]$ # Send my file to nyc via azure east

Oddly enough I am "allowed" to do two simulatious transfers (each at half speed) to the parents/nyc.  What is going on?

Thanks for reaching out to us today on our Comcast Business Support Forums, Grumpysysop. Are you having issues while doing a single transfers to any of the sites you're reporting?

I only have this speed issue with the sites that I have transfered a bunch of data too (my parents, and the nyc site).  The speed capping happens no matter what protocol/port is used.  SSH, ipsec vpn, iperf, etc.

Are you having this issue while directly connected to the Comcast Business Modem or, are you using statically assigned public IP?

I have this issue when directly connected to the comcast modem and I do not have a static public ip.

Please, send me a private message with your full name and the phone number that's listed on the account. I'd like to take a look and see if there are any signal issues.
