Check Your Internet Connection Speed

Unread post by Sheryl Loch » Thu May 19, 2016 1:21 am

Most of us have had times when we knew we were not getting the download speed we were paying for, so we usually head on over to SpeedTest.Net to see what we get.

Now there is a new player in town to check download speed. This one is owned by Netflix. I know sounds crazy that they would have a speed checker, but they have their reasons.

While their new service, Fast.com only checks download, it does what it says. It is also fast. As soon as you hit the site it starts getting your speed.
I tried a few times to compare the 2 sites and they were pretty close. Of course with my slow ass internet connection, a fart in Bangladesh could slow it down.

I normally worry less about the download speed than I do the upload which Fast.com does not give. So, I will likely keep using Speedtest when I need to do a check.
Anyway, there you have an alternative.

Ps. The site may say FAST, but my 4.3 is not impressive. LOL

That must be a pretty heavy duty fart to reach you in Nevada! LMAO!!! :o

That's interesting that Netflix is hopping on the speed test wagon. And you have the slowest internet of anyone I know. Crazy!

Lany, that is how sensitive my internet is. But, it should be getting better soon. If I get an upload over 0.67 I will probably wet my pants with excitement.

Jessica, don't snort! That could have blown a line out and I would have no internet.

Gaming takes speed and a hell of a video card.
