Before I can help, I'll need some more information:
What OS are you testing the speed on?
What ISP do you have?
What state do you live in?

But honestly, I think Its just your ISP's speed fluctuating. Don't freak out on daily tests, just keep track of the overall picture in a month and get the average of all those speeds, then you'll get your real average.

I deleted the Windows partition and reformatted my hard drive with Mac.

I did the test again, and I'm back up to ~6500kb/sec for download.

I have no idea why it went so slow before.

Do you wan't to know why your Mac is slowing down? Because it is a Mac and Apple doesn't understand how to utilize Intels revolutionary Core Duo processor.
