SpeedTest - simple bandwidth test

21 October, 2015 | CentOS

On CentOS 6.x this is super easy to install since Python 2.6.x is already installed (Yum dependency).

1. Get the script

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

2. Make it executable

chmod +x speedtest-cli

3. Run it

./speedtest-cli
