Netflix Has Created a Tool That Measures How Fast Your Internet Really is

“Oh yeah, bud, fastest surfing in the game,” some dude at the internet shop tells you.

We all know that isn’t true – so how fast is your connection really?

Netflix has made it easier than ever to find out how many Mbps you’re dealing with at any given time. Everyone’s favourite reason to down a bottle of wine on a Tuesday has just launched, a free tool that allows you to check your browser or mobile internet speed with just one click.

While similar services have been around for years, Netflix’s offering caters to the ‘why the f*ck has my stream been buffering for five seconds!?’ crowd.

Which is to say, is simple, quick, and easy on the eyes.
