What you are talking about is called The Bottleneck Effect
You might have a fast broadband connection but the more programs you run or computers you hook up to the network cause a drain on the system. In some cases using a program called Netlimter can save you some greef.
Think of what happens when you fill up a bottle of water and you tip it upside down to let the water out, the water will only go out as fast as the Slowest Part which is the neck on the bottle. Use a bottle with a large bottle top on it and the water will flow out faster. Same with traffic on the roads and highways the reason why you end up going so slow its bumper to bumper traffic is due to The Bottleneck Effect.
Using netlimiter you can control downloads and uploads of particular programs on one system which will help you manage the traffic and keep things running smoothly.
Also remember that the bottleneck might not be at your end, it could be at a Server end out there on the net when what is most likely to happen is there are too many people connecting to the server, so therefore at the Server end you have the Bottleneck.
