You may have heard about Netflix’s new speed test at Fast.com – unlike other speed tests, it’s meant to specifically test your connection to Netflix’s servers.

This is good information to have if you’re trying to troubleshoot a poor Netflix connection. But if you’re trying to determine why your upload speeds are poor, or your VoiP calls are spotty, this test – and many others online – might not be of much help.


Congratulations to Dawn Cole, Technical Support Agent, on being named Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference winner for May!


Dawn joined Socket less than a year ago, but has already become a core member of the Tech Support team, known for her patient and friendly manner in dealing with any problems that come her way. In addition to helping out any of Socket’s customers that call in, she also helps with training new employees, and is about to bring her talents to our Business Center.


Saturday, April 30, a group of Socket employees participated in the 5th annual Float Your Boat fundraiser in support of The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri at Bass Pro Shops Lake. Float Your Boat is a community-focused event that allows teams to build boats solely out of cardboard, decorate them uniquely, and then race them accross the lake in hopes that they don't sink before they cross the finish line.
