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.
hum.... i keep getting "command not found"
The instructions on how to install are here:https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli
You need to install python then run python speedtest-cli
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.
