Whatever you do, you do at your own risk. I can only recommend and do not claim 100% of the solution much depends on your environment and other settings. I can not guess. Addition of materials and fixing bugs is welcomed

The most important part of Linux user interaction is the console. Met here with a wonderful script to check the speed of the Internet connection.
All you need is to go to the project page and perform a couple of simple operations, I did not use the most affordable many options.

curl -Lo speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli


wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py
chmod +x speedtest-cli

With these commands we will download the script and allow its execution. Additional flags to run in the sequel.

Here is the very help, so as not to look for yourself then.

$ speedtest-cli -h
usage: speedtest-cli [-h] [--no-download] [--no-upload] [--single] [--bytes]
[--share] [--simple] [--csv]
[--csv-delimiter CSV_DELIMITER] [--csv-header] [--json]
[--list] [--server SERVER] [--exclude EXCLUDE]
[--mini MINI] [--source SOURCE] [--timeout TIMEOUT]
[--secure] [--no-pre-allocate] [--version]
