Running a ‘speedtest.net’ test

Speedtest.net, typically used on desktop PCs is also available for Linux systems. Here’s what you need to do:

wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli
./speedtest-cli


If you’re looking to share the speed test with others, simply add the –share flag:
