    Very interesting article. I am going to use this tool, as sometimes the browser version of Speedtest.net is slow itself because of the GUI.

    Interesting. Will have to give it a try on my CentOS server.

    Funny, thing here is that you have hidden the computer’s name in terminal (brush) , but it’s still visible on terminal window title. Believe me I have done the same in past. Nice tutorial by the way.

    You can also try http://dl.getipaddr.net

    They use curl (which is a well known command line utility) to run a speed test.

    The code is published on GitHub as well. In short,

    wget https://raw.github.com/blackdotsh/curl-speedtest/master/speedtest.sh && chmod u+x speedtest.sh && bash speedtest.sh

    Why not just install from the distro repositories? It’s in Debian, so it should be in most distros. And no need for the python stuff, just a straight binary, from a known repository.
