To be able to access Netflix content, you must have a fast internet connection because Netflix is not going to work until the internet is fast. I don’t know whether you know or not, but there is a way to test your internet with the Netflix speedometer. To know more about this feature, you will have to go through the below-mentioned post because we have discussed all the details here below.
Netflix offers an internet speed measurement service available in the web and app version for Android and iPhone (iOS). Fast is able to measure how fast downloads and uploads are made through the mobile or Wi-Fi network. The platform also analyzes connection latency, which indicates how long it takes, in milliseconds, for a data packet to go from one designated point to the other, such as from the smartphone to a network page.
The company’s goal in creating the service was to offer subscribers a fast, free way to determine the speed offered by providers. The step-by-step below, performed on a Moto Z2 Play, can be done in both the mobile app and the website because both have the same interface.
Step 1. Download the Fast.com app or go to the Fast.com website.
Step 2. When you open the app or website, the service will calculate the network download speed alone, just wait. Tap “Show more settings” to see data such as upload speed and “unloaded” and “uploaded” latency with network traffic (i.e., when loading a web page).
Step 3. Go to “Settings” and access the possibilities offered by the program. As informed, Netflix performs a series of downloads and uploads to perform the test and the user can choose the maximum and a minimum number of these connections. It is also allowed to choose the minimum and maximum time period, in seconds, for the measurement to be made.
Step 4. Below are some boxes that can be marked, if you want to measure the latency loaded during the upload (i.e., include in the time estimate the situations in which a file is sent to a site, for example), always show all (without having to touch the “Show More Information” button) and / or save the new settings on those devices. Once the selection is complete, go to “Save”.
The service will automatically redo the evaluation. However, if you want to repeat the procedure, simply touch the arrow icon inside the green circle.
This is how you can check the speed of your internet by taking the help of Netflix. If you come across any issue while performing a check of your internet speed, you can get in touch with Netflix help and support providers. The only thing that you need to ensure when looking at accessing Netflix is the speed of your internet. If it is not up to the mark, then you won’t be able to stream anything. You will have to either upgrade your internet plan or contact your internet service provider.
