If you sometimes need to check download speed on a remote computer, to which you are connected through console, here is a nice tip how to do this:

 wget http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test 

Yes, simple as that. Download a 100 MB test file using wget, and you’ll see a download speed in console.
