    Like for example 1 MB/sec for one sec then 3 MB/sec then 900KB/sec and so on.

    It is not unusual. There are a lot of variables involved between your device, the service provider and their servers, and the internet.

    The amount of people on the network at any given time. Your location and any obstructions in the way all affect speeds.

    What are you doing and how are you measuring? TCP can constantly change due to delay/jitter/reordering when mixed with windowing. Not only that but wireless can change as well, changes in tx/rx signal strength will change max throughput.
