Speedtest on VPN

Testing the speed of VPN server is always a great idea.

str

It may be done in many ways but I love this three step process:

  1. Download the speed test
    > wget https://raw.github.com/
    sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
    
  2. Make the test executable
    > chmod a+rx speedtest.py
    
  3. Run the test
    > python speedtest.py
    

Out:

python speedtest.py
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from ABC NET (88.88.88.88)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by ABC DE (Somewhere) [105.78 km]: 8.13 ms
Testing download speed................................................................................
Download: 95.39 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed................................................................................................
Upload: 93.02 Mbit/s

In here you may notice this VPN has 100 Mbit/s connection.
