Speedy lets you perform fast and private speedtests directly from your Menubar through Apple's servers. In macOS Monterey Apple added a new "networkquality" terminal command which performs a reliable speedtest that matches real world use cases such as videochat more accurately.

Read this article by Dan Petrov (https://danpetrov.xyz/macos/2021/11/14/analysing-network-quality-macos.html) for a more in depth look into the new utility.

🏎 Fast

Speedy performs a full speedtest in under ten seconds

🙈 Private

Speedy connects directly with Apple servers, so no tracking or nonsense.

🕵️‍♀️ Accurate

Speedy uses parallel connections to simulate real world scenarios

🗒 Changelog

1.0 - Initial release

1.1 - The test button is now inactive when a test is running (thanks Dima!)

1.2 - Speedy's design now matches the app icon colors 🎨

1.3 - Larger menu bar icon, added a stop testing button, added a reset button and Speedy now uses the JSON output from the networkquality command so it's more future proof and can also give accurate results for users on connections >1 Gbps (jealous!)
