What are you using for speedtesting?

I have always just used the Fast app from Netflix, and consistently get 2 mbps.

 

I reached out to customer care last week, and asked if this could be improved.

 

After some work on their end, rebooting and removing the SIM, and measuring the speed using the Verizon tool they recommend, my speed went up almost 8x.

 

Here is the tool  customer care recommended: https://www.verizon.com/speedtest/ 

 

I have one concern. The Fast app is still showing the same download speeds as before. 

 

So what site or app are you using to test your download speeds?

I use Speedtest app by Ookla, it's available both on iOS and Android.

Fast.com shows your video download speed since it uses Netflix servers.  Video is typically throttled on prepaid carriers to 480p.

You can use any VPN to increase the speed for Netflix. 

I use speedtest.net for testing the internet and fast.com to test speed for netflix.
