FAST Speed Test



    FAST Speed Test's review

    Published: 2016-08-11, by .

    A super simple test for your internet download speed from the online streaming giant

    • So simple to use
    • Results in one tap
    • Suitable for all types of user
    • Not very detailed reading

    "Netflix and check your download speed"


    FAST Speed Test from Netflix is quite literally the fastest way to get a quick snapshot of your current internet download speed. It couldn't be more stripped back or minimalist - you won't find any reports on ping, latency, jitter, and other stuff - just the 411, plain and simple.

    The app is designed to give you a simple overview of your connection speed - if you need more detail, you'll need to look elsewhere.


    The app couldn't be quicker to use, and gives you a snapshot of your internet connection speed in just one tap. Readings appear literally as soon as you open the app (the test is preformed via a series of downloads from Netflix servers).

    The interface is completely minimalist and uncluttered - a child could take the reading.


    The app is very simple, and only provides an estimate on current connection speed. If you want info on ping, latency, jitter, etc, you'll have to look elsewhere.

    Typical Netflix... It's always the ISPs fault because Netflix doesn't want to pay for fast/large enough connection pipes to support it's membership. That's why they always report a low connection speed. It's not your connection problem. It's Netflix' cost-cutting problem.

    This is totally wrong. Every time I try it I get numbers of 24 - 32 mps going back and forth with Speedtest I get 115 - 125 mps. I pay for 100 mps

    Not accurate at all. One extra star for not requiring unnecessary permissions, but what's the point of keeping it if it doesn't give an accurate test result. Uninstalled.
