CLI speedtest

Preforming speedtest can help you discover network problems. However this is not as simple as opening a website when you are on a cli only server. Thankfully a simple python script to perform this test.

Download the small program to your server using curl or wget.

$ curl -Lo speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py

$ wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest_cli.py

Once downloaded just run it.

$ python speedtest-cli

Once you are done you can just remove the script.
