I can only guess your ISP is talk talk  ?  rule 1 never test to your ISP ,
Indeed they have a interest in keeping you happy and paying , speed has so many factors involved ( time of day , congestion ,lack of bandwidth from your ISP ) rarely as they claim your computer /router etc ,
Try a speed test  from  http://testmy.net/  it should show your location and ISP  , and then look further into the results ,

yes indeedsince think bb has up dated and no longer needs flash or Java
also shows a graph  of your test up and down consistency,
never could figure out why they were needed for a simple speed  test
BTW, been speed testing since the good old dial up days ,  indeed thought 48kbps was good going , yeah always wanted to be the fastest kid on the block since the soap box cart days  lol:1,
but don't understand  , and latched on to  bufferbloat bit
 sounds a good name for forums , indeed who ate all the pies  :'(
