We all test our internet connection speed quite often to see if the ISP is providing the speed as promised. And one of the best ways to check the speed of your ISP is the Speedtest app. The service is available on browser or using app on mobile phones.
Netflix has now launched a new internet speed test service called Fast.com. It is probably the easiest way to check the speed of your ISP.
All you need to do is to head over to fast.com and it will automatically check the speed of your ISP. It also provides a link to check the speed using Speedtest.net. The service is pretty minimal with no ads and dead simple interface with no buttons as well.
According to the FAQ, fast.com estimates your current download speed. You will generally be able to get this speed from leading internet services, which use globally distributed servers. To calculate the speed, Fast.com performs a series of downloads from Netflix servers.
