    Download speed

    I am trying to come up with a ballpark figure for my download speed.

    But the results are not showing up in the text file.


    cd Documents
    lftp -e 'pget URL address exit; ' >> Download_Speed.txt
    rm Ready Heroes.mp4

    I'm not sure why you're trying to execute a script where there are a lot of sites that measure it for you. Please provide more information about your particular situation and enlighten us.

    So go to Distro Watch, pick one that you're interested in looking at and download it then open the "Display the progress of ongoing downloads" tab in Firefox and see what the speed is.
    I normally get around 700-760kbs which is slow by todays standards.

    Trouble with speed test sites are that it is dependent on where the servers are, traffic, etc.

    Using a script, I can find a server close to me for more accurate results.
