    Interface is clean


    Results are inaccurate

    This is just a wrapper around https://github.com/ddsol/speedtest.net which is basically the same, so not sure the need for this package. All of these CLI tools for speedtest.net suffer from very inaccurate speeds. Check the discussion here https://github.com/ddsol/speedtest.net/issues/11

    Simplicity and convenience.


    If it could somehow give me more bandwidth, but apart from that I think its perfect.

    Sindre is the man!

Been using this for a long time and love it. It always surprises me how often I need to use a tool like this on various servers I work on.

Clean AF! I already love fast.com and Google's own Internet Speed Test, but for someone that spends more than half his day in Terminal, you gotta love how simple and beautiful this is.

@joshuapinter Google has it's own speed test tool?

@joshuapinter @arunsathiya Only on Google.com I guess.

Been using this with my Raspberry Pi and a cron job to test and record my internet speed every hour for the past month or so. Gives me some good ammunition when my ISP tells me they are increasing service prices.

This + Alexa = awesomeness! Alexa, ask 'speedtest' to check my internet speed. Add a dial-up audio while the test is in progress for kicks 😁
