This one is pretty straightforward. If you want to see how fast your internet is without having to open up Chrome, speed-test is for you.

This is a tool I use quite frequently and always like to have in my back pocket just so that I don’t have to chew up additional resources from Chrome. Also, it’s pretty cool to do it in the terminal.

How to install

If you haven’t already got Node.js, then download that first, then run:

npm install --global speed-test
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Running

This is pretty simple too.

speed-test
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
