Who’s up in the Netflix ISP Speed Index?

March 16, 2016

Netflix has released February data from its ISP Speed Index. The Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on a particular ISP and not necessarily a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network.

Highlights include:

In Austria, A1 nearly doubled their average monthly speed to 3.12 Megabits per second (Mbps) from 1.66 Mbps in January, ranking them five out of six in that country’s index.

In Canada, Bell Aliant (Fibre Optic) fell to 12th place, down 2 with an average speed of 3.07 Mbps, down from 3.40 Mbps in January. In November 2015, the company ranked third, with an average speed of 3.74 Mbps.

In Ireland, Virgin Media climbed three to third place with an average speed of 3.00 Mbps, up from 2.46 Mbps in January.

In the Netherlands, Ziggo (formerly UPC) reversed the slide that began last summer, rising to fourth place with an average speed of 4.06 Mbps, up from 2.68 Mbps in January.

In Switzerland, upc cablecom jumped three spots to third place, posting an average speed of 4.04 Mbps, up from 2.87 Mbps last month.

In the US, Bright House jumped six spots to third place with an average speed of 3.69 Mbps, up from 3.53 Mbps in January. Time Warner, which shares a network with Bright House, climbed two spots to 8th place with an average speed of 3.54 Mbps, up from 3.39 Mbps.
