I'm not sure if this will work for everyone, but it seems to have worked for me. The solution? Turn off WIFI Power Save Mode.

I'm sure part of the reasons that 4.1.2. downloads slowly for some of us is that ATT's servers are very busy right now.

However I think WIFI Power Save Mode prevents the phone from reaching maximum download speeds on WIFI. Usually this doesn't matter so much, but in this case it seems as though it only serves to make the issue that much worse.

To do this, enter:

1. *#197328640# into the dialer.

2. Tap the menu button and tap WIFI at the very bottom of the menu.

3. Look for "WIFI Power Save Mode" and tap the button below it to turn it off.

Note that whenever you restart the phone, this will turn back on.
