I don’t have any hard stats in front of me at the moment, but if I had to guess I would say that at least 80 percent of people who are worried about their internet speed feel that way due to Netflix (or some other less polite video streaming service). So the fact that Netflix is behind the new quick-and-easy internet speed checker Fast.com makes perfect sense.
Fast.com is an uncluttered, simple, one-thing-only site that starts checking your download speed immediately after you start it up. Then it offers to take you to another speed-test site just to check their figuring, but hopefully you’ll be too busy enjoying your blazing-fast internet speed to waste time doing that.
So what are you waiting for? If you need to do some Netflix troubleshooting or if you’re just curious to see how much your internet service provider is ripping you off, check out Fast.com right here.
