There is:

6.  The Downlink Client Hint
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-client-hints-02#section-6

|   The "Downlink" request header field is a number that indicates the
|   client's maximum downlink speed in megabits per second (Mbps), as
|   defined by the "downlinkMax" attribute in the W3C Network Information
|   API ([NETINFO]).
