Example

The following example measures image s3 download latency, and may be used to detect a poor connection and respond with smaller images.

var latency = network.measure({ size: 994868 });

var url = 'http://i.cloudup.com/iSVZF2meyeA.jpg?' + Date.now();
var img = new Image;

img.onload = function(){
  var res = latency();
  console.log('%s mbps', res.mbps.toFixed(2));
};

img.src = url;
