Does anyone know of an alternative command line speed tester to

Recently speedtest-cli has been giving bizarre results and the
developer has been unresponsive, so I'm looking for an alternative.

I'm on a 200 Mbps tariff, but speedtest-cli has been reporting download
speeds of 1.58 Mbps, whereas an online tool by Which? reports 193 Mbps
and the Fingbox attached to my home network reports similar speeds.
