Anybody who wants to test their connection speed can easily do so from a speed test web site — but that isn’t very geeky. Here’s how to do a test from the terminal prompt instead.

Or you can install speedtest-cli and get the job done.

Unfortunately my win8 machine tells me that 'curl' is not a recognized command.
Even tried 'cur1' though I knew it was wrong. Ah well , not everything is right in this world of ours.

Note: If you are using Windows, you’ll want to either have Cygwin installed, or have a copy of curl or wget installed.
