check internet speed

Netflix has started a new website called Fast.com that allows you to check internet speed with ease. It shows you what your actual internet download speed is.

Plenty of people are cheated by their internet service provider on a daily basis. They tell you you’re internet speed is so and so, but you can’t even stream a show properly. Actual internet download speed is not what the provider advertises.

A lot of things can affect your internet speed. There may be too many users on the network, causing congestion and leading to slower speeds. The service provider can also throttle your internet speed for various reasons.

” We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider. When you’re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you’re getting from your Internet service provider.”

Therefore, to help folks out to check internet speed with ease, Netflix has launched a new website. Yes, you’re probably used to using SpeedTest.net, but this is way more simpler and cleaner. There aren’t any ads or hosts to select. It is literally as quick as opening a website, and boom, you have your result.

Once you open Fast.com, it automatically selects the nearest host and determines your actual internet download speed. It works on your mobile phone as well as your broadband internet, and in any part of the world. The website uses Netflix’ own servers to tell you your internet download speed, in a matter of seconds.

The site even adds a link below that will take you to Speedtest.net to compare results. Most of the time, the results are similar, but sometimes there can be big differences.

Fast.com is a fast and easy way to check your internet download speed at any given moment. That’s all it does. It is a free service and works in any country, and you don’t have to be a Netflix user to try it.
