CLI – Speedtest

How to test speed from command line:

wget -O /dev/null http://link-to-speedtest/ - you know, the file is downloaded right into the RAM Memory so it isn't hard-disk dependent anymore.

Misc test files:

SoftLayer:

wget -O /dev/null http://speedtest.dal01.softlayer.com/downloads/test100.zip
wget -O /dev/null http://speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com/downloads/test500.zip
