Not with the Xbox no. Even if you could, you are connecting to different peoples games all over the world, so it would be different each time as you communicate with different people in different parts of the country/region/world.
You can however test the speed of your internet connection on your PC by visiting a speedtest website like this one, pingtest is also another good site to use.
Since the introduction of Internet Explorer on the Xbox many people are running speedtests to speed test websites (www.speedtest.net etc) and complaining that the Xbox isn't working correctly as they are only getting download speeds of 3 or 4Mbps compared to their PC.
The Xbox and Internet Explorer on the Xbox is not set-up to run these types of tests, there is nothing wrong with your Xbox it just isn't a valid test, carry out a test from a wired PC/laptop
