Are you bored with overloaded speed test services? You don't have to use them at all, because you can run own webserver, serving large test files (custom size: 100 MB, 100 GB, 1 TB..., upto 8192 PB).
There is no more need to use publicly hosted storage services to download ordinary 100MB.bin. With a single command spawn own speed test instance to verify your Internet provider.
Chrome "Downloads" page
- download huge files < 8192 PB
- choose between zeros file or random content
- easy to use HTTP GET endpoints (Chrome, curl, etc.)
- user-defined file size limit
