CLI internet speed test?

anyone know of a CLI internet speed test.
I am setting up and automated system of testing various CPE and routers and this would make life easier.

this is running on CENTOS 5 2.6.18-8.el5

if there is anything else I should add please let me know

I am fairly new to the Linux world but an experienced MS and Network administrator.

Any and all help/advice is greatly appreciated
