Netflix tells you your Internet speed with its handy Fast.com service

It's as easy as surfing to fast.com

Forget over complicated Internet speed meters: Netflix is letting you know just how fast your broadband is via fast.com, a service that is totally free with no ads involved even.

All you need to do is just go to the URL fast.com  to immediately see just how fast your broadband or mobile connection is. It's not the same as Netflix's own ISP Speed Index, which is all about measuring average monthly speeds of Netfix streams during primetime. Fast.com is all about your current connection at any given time.

You don't even need to be a member of Netflix to enjoy using fast.com. Besides this service, there is also cellular data controls (details on this page) that will help ensure you don't accidentally use up your data plan catching up on House of Cards.

In the meantime, we'll help you keep updated with the best picks on Netflix and which new shows are heading our way next.
