My wife didn't have quite the same issue. On her laptop she would get
poor transfers of about 2.5MB/s but this was computer to computer on
local wireless network. She would also get where other computers could
see her and because of that network printers would drop off. Adding
the following:

options b43 nohwcrypt=1

to /etc/modprobe.d/b43.conf

seemed to help. Others report adding "qos=1" to that helps as well.
Just google around for broadcomm and nohwcrypt.
