I have to choose between two Internet Service Providers (ISP's), I have tried ping to test the two ISP's but I am looking for more accurate and reliable testing tools.

  • I am not sure how you can test them until you have an account there. Jul 23, 2023 at 12:02
  • @RohitGupta I have them both at my place, I just plug either WAN cable to the router. One ISP over cables and the other over wireless link.

  • You can use curl or wget commands to download or upload big file using both ISPs and compare speed and time. There are also number of CLI speedtests available if you search like speedtest.net/apps/cli Jul 23, 2023 at 14:54
