Fast.com, The Fast New Way To Check Internet Download Speeds (By Netflix).

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and view here. Go to fast.com to try it out. Automatic.

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.

Use gstnetworks.net to access the ‘GST Networks‘ speedtest — based on the same  Ookla technology as used by speedtest.net.

The results, i.e., bandwidth readings, haven’t changed — and that is good.

New interface identifies ISP, in my case MetroCast. That is neat.

Just wanted to share this with YOU.

gstnetworks.net, which is lightweight and nifty, is ALWAYS my preferred means of checking my bandwidth. IF gstnetworks.net gives me a decent reading I leave at that. These days I only use speedtest.net IF I have to do some ‘diagnostics’ to see what is wrong with my bandwidth. I recommend that you do the same. Start with IF gstnetworks.net.
