I'm using w8.1, I get about 10mb/s.
So it's not an OS wide issue, when did the problems start and did you install something new that you can recall?
I don't use comcast, just doing educated guessing here.
Also, check the task manager
Only thing that's taking up network usage is uTorrent. Also, I reimaged my computer with 8.1 then left for vacation right after. So for a few weeks, I wasn't able to torrent. After I got back, it's been slow since (this was after a fresh install of 8.1).

Although i always thought its was just my wifi card on my desktop.
Try a different client? i know some torrent sites don't whitelist some major clients.
I tried uTorrent and Vuze. Also, I just got Comcast to send a refresh signal to my modem and that seemed to work. Torrents getting ~1.5 mb/s but still nowhere near my old speeds. And I have yet to receive any DMCA letters; hopefully I don't get any.
Well, if there's nothing else on there then it's not malware causing it, nor is it the OS.
It's with the highest probability Comcast lowering your speeds.
Not sure how it works over there in the U.S. but to my understanding you are paying for a certain speed and if what you get isn't what you are paying for then you should probably contact them and see what's going on.
