Netflix Open Connect pledges expanded local access
June 9, 2022
Netflix announced at this year’s its continued efforts to collaborate with internet service providers to make stories made globally more locally accessible.
As members of the P2C Digital Coalition, Netflix pledges to partner with neutral internet exchange points and data centers to deploy content caching servers in Least Developed Countries (LDC), Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) improving local access to and the quality of streaming services for over 100 million people.
Netflix says it will aim and expect to achieve over 80 per cent of content streamed locally in these communities, reducing the cost to backbone networks, driving demand for high speed broadband, and enabling the development of essential components of the digital economy.
