Port 80 download speeds being throttled.

This isn't the first time I've noticed this. Trying to download a 50gb game from EA Origin over port 80 and the speed seems throttled at 25mbit. Speed tests over port 80 all come back fine, but ANY file downloaded over port 80 is gimped. Tested downloads on SSL ports and a handful of others and they're all fine. 

 

I remotely tested the same download on a Comcast residential line about 30 miles away and I'm getting 100mbit+ download speeds.

 

Just curious if this is happening(or happened in the past) to anybody else?

Re: Port 80 download speeds being throttled.

In this case it sounds more like EA is throttleing their upload.
Most webservers cap the download on the server end as well to allocate bandwidth to multiple people.
