After getting slower and slower internet speed on everything, I checked with a speed test. I was supposed to be getting ~12Mps and was only getting ~2. Was getting normal speedw with my iPad and iPhone so I called my ISP (AT&T). Friendly rep walked me through some settings, both with my browser(s) and reset the gateway. Ding, ding, ding, everything works as it should now. He wasn't able to explain why only the iMac was affected, but, at this point, I'm just glad everything's working.

I have a 50x5 Mbit cable business class modem, from Time Warner, in my house (doing that give me priority bandwidth over other residences).... Also as a business class there's no data caps or port blockings. The most I EVER get from the iTunes Store is 4-5MBytes/sec (about 35 Mbits)... Usually I get 1-2 MBytes/sec to iTunes or any device
My guesses are
1) Apple just doesn't have the bandwidth during certain times
2) I notice they throttle accounts. If I download an entire hd season, I start out fast, then it slows after a few hrs... Im guessing apple has a max data cap per day then slows you down.
3) I also don't think Apple is capable of handling all the new 35-50Mbit connections that are now readily available from the big cable companies.
Im in Charlotte, NC, USA
