Netflix Is Improving Their Fast.com Service

Ever wonder what your internet speed really is? Maybe you’re paying for 100 Mbps down but wonder if you are really getting it? Do some speed test sites confuse you? Netflix sought to address all that by making a very basic speed test site called Fast.com.

Now Netflix has announced that they are updating Fast.com to not only show your download speed but also your upload speed and latency, giving you even more details about your internet performance.

“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,” Netflix said on their site.

To find additional details you need to click on the show more info button at the bottom of your speed test. There you will find full speed test details.
