Hihi,
Long time lurker, first time post:-)
I've not seen my problem posted before, so I would be grateful for any help.
For the last 2 weeks when trying to download large files from Apple and Microsoft (or wherever) I can download between 20 to 90 percent and then the speed will drop to a near standstill. iTunes is kind of similar in that when I purchase an album, 8 of the songs will whizz through but 3 or 4 songs will take 10 minutes each to download.
Generally for web downloads I might have to retry the download 2 or 3 times and it will come through eventually . This happens during peak and off peak hours. However during peak hours its worse and the overall speed is up and down like a yo-yo and much slower in general. During off peak the speed is at a constant max until it drops off. If I leave the download going (after speed drop) and start another download of the same file it will come through at top speed (unless peak hours were the speed still fluctuates).
As an example file, this update from the Apple website http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1484 gave me trouble. Even though I have the file I just checked it right now and sure enough after around 200mb the speed dropped to 50 kb/s. And this is at 5am in morning.
I have done the speed tester at regular intervals as suggested in other posts and all is as expected. Great download (37Mbps) and upload speed (8 Mbps) and a 38.72Mbps profile. 
I use an Apple Airport Extreme but I have subbed in the HomeHub 3 for a few days to rule out Airport issues and the problem persists. Problem still remains when wired. I have restarted the OR modem. I have also used different computers and made sure only one was connected.
I will be contacting the mods as well as requested (see StephanieG's post, link below) since my son has Starcraft 2 lag issues between 17.00 and 00.00 which I think might be related to the World of Warcraft issue.

Could the issues be related?
Cheers, Shaun.

Hello lootcod. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
Actually, any non-802.11n device on your 802.11n network will be the "weak" link. That includes both the 802.11g AirPort Extreme Base Station (AEBS), AirPort Express Base Station (AX), or any other client with 802.11b/g.
In addition, remember each base station added to a WDS, effectively reduces the overall throughput in half...so with a total of three stations (main, relay, & remote), your network throughput would be only 1/4 of the original...at ALL of the stations. As an example, if all of the base stations were 802.11n, the throughput would be around 37.5 Mbps; for 802.11g, 13.5 Mbps.
