Get a stopwatch.

Get a runner (or get runners).

Determine and measure the distance between point A and point B.

Start the runner(s) at point A.

Yell "GO!" and start your stopwatch; the runner(s) should start running from point A toward point B when you yell "GO!"

When the runner(s) reach(es) point B, click your stopwatch and see how much time elapsed. This would be the speed of the runner(s) from point A to point B.

If you need to convert this to other distances or other measurements, you will have to perform mathematical calculations accordingly.

What is banddwidths and speed meanning?

A computer's speed refers to its CPU (Control Processor Unit) speed which is measured in Hertz (cycles per second). The more cycles that a computer can do in a second, the more program commands that it can execute. Think of it as how fast a pack of runners can go. The bandwidth then, is like a bridge that all the runners have to go over. The wider the bridge or bandwidth, the more runners it will allow to cross at the same time.
