If you have doctl set up, you can script a thing that pings each datacenter’s speedtest endpoint four times and shows the results, like below

$ doctl compute region list --no-header | grep -v false | awk '{print $1}' | \
  while read p; do echo -n "$p: "; ping -c4 speedtest-$ | \
  grep --color=never rtt; done
