speedtest will only measure the end-to-end bandwidth between your end point and the remote site, here the speed will be limited to internet bandwidth.

For your internal bandwidth measurement, iPerf is a good to to use. You install it in server mode in one workstation and use the same tool as client from another workstation.  here is the link -

There is also a GUI version of operf celled jPerf. Here is a document to read - Here
