Conclusion

This project is designed to introduce you to an Internet speed monitor and the applications they have within IoT. You will have run multiple commands and created a simple python script to allow the Raspberry Pi to record the download and upload speed as well as the ping, then upload them to a google drive. This project is just scratching the surface of what you can achieve with it, there are so many different projects you can build around this. Keep in mind that the Raspberry is limited in processing power and will not be able to handle large volumes of traffic accurately.
