For example: $ fast.sh # Bytes Cur. rate Avg. Rate ------- ----------- ----------- 1.22GiB [31.1MiB/s] [31.1MiB/s] ## Credit The original implementation comes from Tiksi's [one-liner at Hacker News](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12259331). I just added some whitespace and made some adjustments that made it more flexible and easier for me to read and maintain. ## Requirements The script requires these two handy modules: 1. **[jq](https://stedolan.github.io/jq/)**: A JSON parser. 2. **[pv](http://www.ivarch.com/programs/pv.shtml)**: ([mirror](https://github.com/icetee/pv)) A pipe viewer. ## Is it any good? [Yes](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3067434). ## Licence This software uses the [MIT license](http://git.dlma.com/fast-bandwidth-calculator.git/blob/master/LICENSE.txt).
