Weird download

Click for full size
This is a snapshot of my current download. It is a 5 gig file from iTunes (Movie-Star Trek: Into The Darkness)
I have the 30/5 connection. Normally the speed is pretty constant but this download is wacky. It started off with speed up and down, then switched to an even more erratic download. It seems to much of a uniform pattern....like something is purposely controlling the download? I am not complaining about either Apple or TIme Warner, but would like input as to what is causing this download pattern?

Could just very well be a CDN problem if it has to fetch your data from another location. Do all downloads do this?
