internet speed: the-future-now
 Netflix's new site is a giant
 "f*ck you" to Comcast and
 Time Warner
 Netflix launched a site late Wednesday
 night called Fast.com, where- in one
 click - anyone browsing the internet
 can see how fast their internet speed is.
 Although it's great for consumers,
 some internet providers might not be
 happy about the new website.

 Okay, so here's why Netflix speedtest is
 so brilliant.
 Most of us know about Speedtest.net,
 right? Well Comcast and Time Warner
 know about it too. They know
 customers use it to check to see if
 they're getting what they are paying for.
 Comcast techs even tell customers to
 check their speed with Speedtest.net.
 So, to make sure people think they are
 getting good speeds, Comcast and
 Time Warner prioritize traffic going to
 Speedtest.net. When you check your
 speed there it's artificially inflated. That
 is NOT the speed you are getting when
 you browse tumblr and that is definitely
 not the speed you get when you watch
 Netflix.

 Comcast and Time Warner can not
 artificially inflate the results by
 prioritizing traffic to Fast.net unless
 they also prioritize traffic to Netflix, and
 they definitely do not want to do that.
