How can I calculate internet speed and display to my website?

Is it possible to calculate the internet speed from my ISP and display it on my website? one my client wants to know the speed details to be displayed on top and check it?   Any commercial solutions also welcome.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use this code if you want to do it on your webserver without an API:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title></title>
</head>
<body>

<div id="progress">Please Enable JavaScript</div>

<script type="text/javascript">

var imageAddr = "https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/79/Face-smile.svg/10000px-Face-smile.svg.png"; 
var downloadSize = 983040; //bytes

window.onload = function() {
    var oProgress = document.getElementById("progress");
    oProgress.innerHTML = "Calculating Speed. Please Wait...";
    window.setTimeout(MeasureConnectionSpeed, 1);
};

function MeasureConnectionSpeed() {
    var oProgress = document.getElementById("progress");
    var startTime, endTime;
    var download = new Image();
    download.onload = function () {
        endTime = (new Date()).getTime();
        showResults();
    }
    
    download.onerror = function (err, msg) {
        oProgress.innerHTML = "Unexpected error.  Please try again later.";
    }
    
    startTime = (new Date()).getTime();
    var cacheBuster = "?v=" + startTime;
    download.src = imageAddr + cacheBuster;
    
    function showResults() {
        var duration = (endTime - startTime) / 1000;
        var bitsLoaded = downloadSize * 8;
        var speedBps = (bitsLoaded / duration).toFixed(2);
        var speedKbps = (speedBps / 1024).toFixed(2);
        var speedMbps = (speedKbps / 1024).toFixed(2);
        oProgress.innerHTML = "Your connection speed is: <br />" + 
           speedBps + " bps<br />"   + 
           speedKbps + " kbps<br />" + 
           speedMbps + " Mbps<br />";
    }
}

</script>

Of course you should save the image to your server if you want to test your server speed.
