Netflix's tool tests internet connection speeds

With the amount of content we stream and download, internet speed has never been more important. Netflix has launched a tool to test your internet speed.

Netflix has snapped up the Fast.com domain, a fitting domain for what it does. Once you visit the website it instantly calculates what your current download speed is. Netflix describes Fast.com as, "a simple-to-use way for consumers to estimate what speed their ISP is providing. It is not a network engineer's analysis and diagnostic suite."

While there are websites that offer the same service, Fast.com is a more accessible way to check up on your download speed. In fact, the service also offers an easy way to then compare your result on SpeedTest.net.

It’s clever by Netflix too, as the “Powered by Netflix” logo may prompt people to click through and check out the service for themselves.
