Rpi4B download speed test

Viewed 7 times

I have issue with curl and wget transfer speed on my new Raspberry Pi 4 1GB.

Pi is sonnected to the router by ethernet cable.

When I try to download for example a large test file or something from github transfer speed is around 30-40KB/s.

It does not matter if the output is a file on sd card or /dev/null.

When I run speedtest it shows 500Mbps and that is what my ISP offers.

When I try run the same curl/wget commands on my other RPi2b speed is maxed out for its 100Mbps ethernet.

  • Ah, Rpi4B 1GB download 30-40kB/s is ridiculously slow. I have a Rpi4B 1GB/2GB to test right now. Can you give me the exact wget command for a very large file “wget http: …” and any check speed commands your are using for me to test for you to compare? – tlfong01 45 mins ago    
  • I am using this site for a mentioned large files thinkbroadband.com/download and speedtest is this one speedtest.net/apps/cli – krzysiej 27 mins ago
