Monitoring network bandwidth can be a tricky issue.

First of all, I would check run a speedtest from a public website, such as http://speedtest.net. See what speeds you are getting - if they are slow, then it's likely that you just have a slow internet connection!

If you think the problem might be on your computer though - one application hogging the network bandwidth, then you should try iftop.

To install iftop:

sudo yum install iftop


Now run it:

sudo iftop


Press Q to exit iftop. To learn more about the tool, run:

man iftop
