There is a big hint in the results from the thinkbroadband test, see how the two download tests differ...the tbb is more congestion and other issues sensitive, whereas the httpx6 saturates the connection over coming issues like this.

So it may be the Vodafone service (or the Openreach cabinet) is very busy in your area. Try the test again in the morning (breakfast times) and if much better you know its not a PC setup issue. Others are seeing some variation between the two tests too

A good test should look more like

Looks a lot like congestion, I second testing at non-peak hours.

Have you got another device like a PC or a phone to try it on? The speed test will run on a phone

Its better but has a hint to it, that once things get busier the tbb result is going to drop.

The early one shows that there is nothing per se wrong with the PC or connection.
