You re paying out the wazoo for a speedy broadband Internet connection, so what gives?

Fast.com is an online tool that will let you check your Internet connection speed in real time.

The tool is compatible with both broadband and cellular connections, allowing it to be used while at home and on the go from virtually anywhere in the world.

David Fullagar, Netflix s vice president of content delivery architecture, said in a blog post that we all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider.

When you re experiencing streaming issues, Fullagar added, fast.com allows you to check your download speed.

To give it a try, simply pop over to fast.com and wait for the results to appear.
