Fast.com is the advertisement free Internet connection speed check site launched by Netflix back in 2016. This week site is updated which now enables users to see additional information about their Internet connection giving details on latency and upload speeds. To test your connection head to the fast.com and allow the program to run until a new button appears asking to “Show more info”.
It doesn’t matter if you are on PC, smartphone, tablet or laptop. Netflix also has smartphone applications of the speed available on both Android and iOS platforms.
“We’ve heard from some FAST.com users that they crave more information about their internet connection. That’s why today, we’re adding the ability to measure connection latency and upload speed. Upload speed measures the speed of the connection for uploading data from a user’s device to the internet. Latency – which refers to the time it takes for data to travel from a user’s device to the server and back – will be measured on both unloaded and loaded connections. Unloaded latency measures the round-trip time of a request when there is no other traffic present on a user’s network, while loaded latency measures the round-trip time when data-heavy applications are being used on the network.”
