There aren't too many elegant ways to do this, that I know of.

You can create a flash movie with a big chunk of nothing in it... With a
couple of calls, you can find how long it took to load.... So if it took 4
secs to load 200k.... You can sort of figure out their connection speed.

But unfortunately, there is not going to be any:

$speed = get_connection_speed();
