netflix launches fast.com to measure your bandwidth

Yo friends,
Are you user of netflix? yes, and you have a slow ISP that can't stream shows properly. well for this netflix have launched a site to measure how much speed your ISP is providing you. So basically netflix is telling to grow up and upgrade your ISP.
Well to test your network just click on fast.com and it will automatically start the test and give you results in seconds. Well we did some test and here's what our result is (still confused if netflix is drunk or what?).

Here are the 4 results from start to end (at least give some close enough results). So guys basically before using Netflix just test your ISP once (i just don't know why).
What is Fast.com measuring?
Fast.com estimates your current download speed. You will generally be able to get this speed from leading internet services, which use globally distributed servers.
Why does Fast.com only report on download speed?
Download speed is most relevant for people who are consuming content on the Internet, and we want fast.com to be very simple and fast.
Why does Fast.com not report on ping, latency, jitter and other things?
Fast.com is a simple-to-use way for consumers to estimate what speed their ISP is providing. It is not a network engineer's analysis and diagnostic suite.
How is the number calculated?
To calculate this estimate, Fast.com performs a series of downloads from Netflix servers.
Will Fast.com work everywhere in the world?
Fast.com will work globally on any device (phone, laptop, or smart TV with browser).
Why is Netflix offering Fast.com?
We want our members to have a simple, quick, commercial-free way to estimate the speed their ISP is providing.
What can I do if I'm not getting the speed I pay for?
If results from fast.com and other speed tests often show less speed than you have paid for, you can ask your ISP about the results.
