Netflix launches Fast.com

Fast.com enables you to check your real Internet speed

Netflix has launched a brand new tool which allows you to tell whether your internet service provider (ISP) is ripping you off.

Fast.com is a stripped down speed test web site, which tells you your internet download speed at the click of a button.

If you are streaming Netflix videos and your internet appears to be going slowly, you can head to the website to check if there is any problems.

Importantly, Fast.com can transfer the blame for slow streams from Netflix onto the ISPs themselves.

The website is free and available to everyone, whether they are a Netflix member or not..

The results may fluctuate, however. Fast.com seems to give different results to more established services like SpeedTest.net, so it might not be the greatest tool to use if you need the most comprehensive info.
