Fast.com, The Fast New Way To Check Internet Download Speeds (By Netflix).
It is by Netflix BUT you DON’T have to be a Netflix customer.
Works, around the world, on ANY device.
Automatic. You don’t have to press a ‘START’ button.
But only does, from what I can see, DOWNLOAD speed. No upload speed.
Seems pretty accurate — though not 100%. Interesting that it says, right there, to compare against “speedtest.net” — the doyen of speedtests.
Given that I am in New Hampshire I use “gstnetworks.net” when I want a quick read and then use “speedtest.net” if I want to explore more. I will probably still use “gstnetworks.net” — since it does give me UPLOAD speed, and I need to know that.
But try “fast.com” out. It is NEAT.
