I don’t know speetest, but why are you logged as root. Log as Volumio, and use sudo instead.

doesnt matter if i execute it as root or as volumio or as volumio using sudo…

A 503 error indicates a problem with the speed test servers. Have you tried asking whether there are problems on the speed test support site?
