Speedtest via CLI
« on: June 30, 2020, 06:02:34 PM »

This will probably interest Weaver and I decided to post the results here rather than clutter his "All-time highest upstream measured speed of 1.86 Mbps TCP throughput: AA tester" topic.

[bcat ~]$ speedtest-cli --help
Usage: speedtest-cli [options]

Command line interface for testing internet bandwidth using speedtest.net.
