Same Computers, Different Download Speeds

I currently have an HP notebook running on Windows 7. My roommate has the EXACT same notebook running on the EXACT same network with the EXACT same internet modem (comcast) providing the service.

Why then do we see this difference:

His speeds:
download - 17 mbps
upload - 3 mbps

My speeds:
download - 0.8 mbps
upload - 3 mbps

How do i fix this difference by increasing my download speed to levels he uses.
