What type of Internet connection do you have to the internet? Cell modem (wireless), Cable, DSL or Fiber. The first two of these are shared connections with others around you, the others are dedicated connections between you and the ISP. In shared connections you may encounter time points your access will be slow, choppy or even fail. Try being the odd man out connecting when others are not likely using the connection. Also you may have other devices in your home that are sapping your allotted bandwidth or even neighbors if you have an open WiFi AP.

Try seeeing just what your ISP speed is, it doesn't matter who your carrier is: http://www.att.com/speedtest/

If you are using the airport, try switching to a hardwired ethernet connection to rule out an Airport card issue. If the problem persists, call your ISP and they will "painfully" walk you through everything to check. They can also reset your modem and test your lines. Most of the time when I have a slow down, it's not me but them but they make you do every check before they do anything.
