Introduction is a newish Netflix download speed test. It bases its results on download speed of actual Netflix video content, which makes it much harder for ISPs to embellish their results (without also speeding up all of Netflix, which may account for as much as 30% of all internet traffic).

It doesn't test upload speed or ping, so fastcli doesn't either.
