Netflix launches Fast.com, the simplest internet speed test ever

Netflix does give you the option to compare your results with Speedtest.net,which provides detailed results on upload speeds, latency and other metrics as well. That’s a nice touch, given the companies aren’t affiliated at all – there’s isn’t even a link to Netflix proper. Of course, this is all part of the company’s continued vendetta against slow ISP speeds, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see links to Fast.com show up on the Netflix site and apps, especially when users are having connection problems. – Napier Lopez, The Next Web
