The Challenge

For a company like Netflix, internet speed is something to take very seriously in the streaming video.

Netflix wanted something easier for mobile users to see just how fast their internet connection is.

"Netflix was planning something like its users can never face any problem in video streaming due to internet issue."

The Solution

Netflix is making it even easier for mobile users to see just how fast their connection is with the launch of its new FAST Speed Test app, available for iOS and Android devices.

While other speed testing apps opt for comparatively flashy designs, Netflix's app keeps things simple, with a large number showing your measured speed taking up the bulk of the screen.

"Most speed test apps show both download and upload speed, but Netflix's app opts to only show download speed."

The Outcome

On July 18, 2013, Netflix earned the first Primetime Emmy Award nominations for original online-only web television programs at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. According to a post by Sergey Fedorov and Ellen Livengood on the Netflix Tech Blog: Netflix users only care about download speed, so that's the number the company focuses on.
