Network speedtest with display

A 16x2 lcd displaying the bandwith of up- and download on a 16x2 lcd screen. Configurable and easy to build.

I was thinking about monitoring the companies network traffic with a small monitor, and finally came up with this simple solution. The pi runs a python script, which checks the network bandwith every 60s (which can be changed with command line arguments) and writes the result into a lcd display.

As this project gets updated from while to while, I will not post the full code here but instead on Github.”
