Netflix Updates Its Speed Test Tool to Provide More Information

Fast Netflix

Netflix launched a new, free, and fast way for people to check their internet speeds a couple of years ago.

Netflix has promised that it will continue to take the feedback from Fast.com users into account and ensure that its tool remains valuable and useful.

Leicester agree fee with Liverpool for Danny Ward
Indeed, reports have now suggested that a fee has been agreed to sell the Welsh global to Leicester City. The probable deal is expected to reach the tally of around £10 million.

The upload speed measure is pretty straightforward, but the latency data is a lot more interesting. Speaking more about the newly added features on the speed testing website, Netflix highlighted that now Fast.com will be able to inform users about latency and upload speeds as well. Just go to the site, and the speed test runs (without ads).

Started in May 2016, Fast.com claims to have generated more than half a billion speed tests, with the usage doubling from quarter billion speed tests in November 2017. If you're the only user on the network, then the time between your gaming action (like moving a mouse or clicking it) and the response from the gaming server will approximately match the unloaded latency measurement. In terms of latency, Fast.com will now measure ping in both loaded and unloaded connections.

Daniel Sturridge wants Liverpool stay, targets more game time under Jurgen Klopp
The forward says pre-season is going to plan and he hopes to force his way back to Klopp's plans. Today, Liverpool are closing-in on Chelsea target Alisson Becker...

For the users' awareness, it's worth knowing that unloaded connections are those where there is no other traffic present on the user's network and loaded connections are the ones that have data-heavy applications running simultaneously on the same network. In ideal scenario, the values for unloaded and loaded latency should be close to each other.

Since internet service providers tend to optimize their connection to work well with popular speed test services, the FAST.com makes a unique offering. That's a hard answer because they do differ considerably.
