ive been playin bass for a year now but ive played with a pick.

at the weekend i lost all my picks so started playing with my fingers.

i play mostly pop punk and metal but i cant get the speed from playing with my fingers.

anybody have any tips on how 2 play fast with fingers?

Even though I think finger playing is way better than picking(on bass), are picks really so expensive so you're switching to fingers just because you lost all your picks?
And to answer your question, practice makes perfect.
like Delirium said a metronome also using multiple fingers alternating fingertip and nail can help
Washburn Lyon
Squier P-Bass
Fender 15B amp
Boss MT-2 Metalzone
Boss TD-2 Turbo Distortion

Practice to a metronome and ALWAYS alternate.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
