Share your Pi Speedtests! [Script]

Post by ghettopi »

Hey folks. Share your Pi Speedtests! Let's see who has the Pi with the fastest internet connection ;)

Remember to remove your public IP address!

Run this command from a terminal :) Source here! It's 100% safe.

Code: Select all

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py | python -
Home Connection (100/100 connection)

Code: Select all

Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from ******** (130.***.***.5)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by ******** [68.38 km]: 20.971 ms
Testing download speed...........................................................
Download: 82.20 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed..............................................................
Upload: 92.61 Mbit/s
With my VPN connected via Wireguard:

Code: Select all

Retrieving speedtest.net configuration...
Testing from ******** (185.***.***.160)...
Retrieving speedtest.net server list...
Selecting best server based on ping...
Hosted by ******** [0.23 km]: 23.456 ms
Testing download speed..................................................................
Download: 82.09 Mbit/s
Testing upload speed.....................................................................
Upload: 82.16 Mbit/s
This is why I love Wireguard. Almost no loss of speed when using it what-so-ever. I'll edit this post later with tests using openvpn to show the difference. In the past openvpn has been much slower.

@ghettopi
Nice idea, especially to compare VPN speeds.

Note (for others) that Python is required to run this script. It is Python 3 compatible, which I would then recommend:
apt install python3
