Fibe 12 Can Only Do One Thing at a Time?

I've just switched from Rogers internet to Bell's Fibe 12 package and I've noticed that my internet access is annoyingly spotty if I'm trying to do two (or three) things at once. If I'm only in my browser, I get the advertised download speed but if I start up my computer and my Dropbox updates or, for example, if I'm downloading a file in iTunes then launch my browser (Firefox), it just sits there waiting until one of the other tasks is done.

Anyone else experience this?

I don't see what difference it would make, but I'm on a MacBook Pro, 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4 GB RAM and a 7200-rpm HDD so it's not a slow machine.

Drop Box and downloads

It is possible that your download software or Drop Box software may be grabbing all the resources. Some of these programs have setting that can be changed to set a maxium resource use for the program.
