Using iperf to test broadband speed

The iperf tool is already widely used by system administrators to test and benchmark networks links. I even used it at home to work out how to layout my powerline adapters for best performance.

A less obvious use for iperf is to measure your broadband speed. Nothing wrong with web based sites like http://www.speedtest.net, I use them a lot and can't resist running quick test when I join a new wireless network with my phone.
