I am having the exact same issue. Started last night. Anything downloaded from the AppStore via Wi-Fi comes in at a snails pace. 3G\LTE is lightening by comparison. This has absolutely nothing to do with my current network (600Mbit pipe, large corporation, no QoSing going on) . This is on Apple's side.

I've got the same problem, my iphone 5 (iOS 6.1.2) downloads apps from the app store extremely slow only over wifi but everything else over wifi works fine on the phone. Switching to cellular data to download the same app is what I've resorted to even for a 6.5mb app. My home wifi dowloads average 9200kbps and my cell data about 5000 to 6000 kbps down.
I've tried all suggestions on the thread from deleting facebook/facebook integration, switching dns servers, hard reseting the iphone, reseting network settings, etc. but nothing works.
If anyone finds a fix or if APPLE has any suggestions please respond.
UPDATE: I just performed a factory reset on my iPhone 5 and set it up as a new phone... App Store (and iTunes) downloads from the phone is still CRAWLING! Everything else works fine.

I'm seeing very good improvement in my Wi-Fi speeds after upgrading my iPhone 5 to iOS 7. Speed tests appear normal. Apps are downloading at acceptable rates. Prior to iOS 7 I could not download faster than 1mbps on Wi-Fi most especially in the App Store. Is anyone else experiencing the same results as me?
