Internet Speed Test: Fast, Cheap [and Under Control]

Screen Shot 2017-08-10 at 8.54.46 PM

I happened on fast.com last week: it's the simplest, easiest-to-use internet speed test site I've yet to encounter.

It's hard to see how it could be any more minimalist: unlike speedtest.net (which requires you to click "GO" and takes 10-15 seconds to yield a download speed result), fast starts the moment the site opens on your screen and produces a result in 5-7 seconds.

Free, the way we like it.

Sure, you say, but it's only download speed, no ping or upload speed data.

Oh, gee, you're right: where should I send your refund?

Wow, I got 120 down with my high speed internet at my apartment, now it feels weak! Home is pathetic at 22!

TY! My new, go-to-know-my-speed.

It's easy to feel the net as "Advertising with Info".

Minimalist places with purpose are a joy!
