Until now, when I wanted to measure my internet speed, I mostly used speedtest.net or speed.cloudflare.com. But recently I found a better alternative: librespeed.org. Advantages: Open Source, tracking and ad-free, possibility to host it yourself. After a few tests I can say that it works at least as well as the other alternatives.
