I don't know if this is such a good idea. dd if=/dev/zero is much faster than 
dd if=/dev/urandom and the output file suits your test. I'm pretty sure that 
if wget will fsck up the file the test will show it even if the original file 
was full of zeros (and BTW, make sure you are using a wget binary with LFS, 
or else the test is useless :)
