Ok so using a ‘local’ server: <br> <br>julian/speedtest-cli# speedtest --server 3564 <br>Retrieving speedtest.net configuration… <br>Retrieving speedtest.net server list… <br>Testing from Petersburg Internet Network ltd. (37.139.3.172)… <br>Hosted by ISP Services (Doetinchem) [1720.13 km]: 63.976 ms <br>Testing download speed… <br>Download: 610.40 Mbit/s <br>Testing upload speed… <br>Upload: 43.64 Mbit/s <br> <br>Pretty good :)

Wait I lied… just ran the test again and got 37Mbit up.
<br>I know why the test is so slow now too. My IP according to geo location is in russia… so speedtest downloads from russia.

17 Mbit up, 116Mbit down from AM server using speedtest.net. <br> <br>Not to great as the upload speed is exactly what I get at home (yes I am lucky), down is pretty good as I suspect that is the server limit from where I download. <br> <br>https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli <br> <br>
