Nice! Is it worth being more unpredictable from their perspective? I might vary the interval or even just offset it a bit to come out of phase with itself day after day (every 29 mins instead of 30, let's say), as well as stick a VPN in there to ensure the ISP is not prioritizing speed test traffic. Varying the speed test host might not be a bad idea either if you can find others.


Every 29 minutes is a great idea!

Quite a few interesting ideas here. I know that speedtest-cli accepts --list which displays a list of speedtest.net servers sorted by distance. Presumably, there are further configuration options.

There are a few ways to make this project more real-world and reliable.

Thanks for the insightful comment.
