Is there a package or a way to test upstream and downstream speeds of an

e.g. www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ , but I need to test from a terminal as
do not have a browser.

Install the iftop package

Description: displays bandwidth usage information on an network interface
 iftop does for network usage what top(1) does for CPU usage. It listens to
network traffic on a named interface and displays a table of current bandwidth usage by pairs of hosts. Handy for answering the question "Why is my Internet
 link so slow?".
