    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.16ghz Core Duo | 1GB RAM | 100 GB HDD | 256MB ATI RADEON x1600
    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.
