Netflix ‘naming and shaming’ poor ISPs

December 12, 2012

Ken Florance, Vice President of Content Delivery at Netflix, has blogged that it will now provide monthly ISP ranking based upon their performance across Netflix streams.

“Our 30 million members view over 1 billion hours of Netflix per month, so we have very reliable data for consumers to compare ISPs in terms of real world performance. Starting today, we’ll publish monthly rankings of major ISPs based upon their actual performance across all Netflix streams,” Florance posted in the company blog.

“Google Fiber is now the most consistently fast ISP in America, according to actual user experience on Netflix streams in November. Broadly, cable does better than DSL.”
