speedtest is a command-line interface to http://speedtest.net written in the Go programming language. Like all good tools, speedtest was written to scratch an itch - mainly that I wanted a quick and easy way to test Internet speeds on machines with limited or now modern web-browsers or even without a UI. Often, I’d find myself logged into a locked down server and rather than spend minutes adding sites to secure zones, allowing javascript, etc. all in an effort just to test the download and upload speeds.

If you enjoy speedtest or use it in your work please drop me a line and let me know.
