Netflix ISP Speed Index for July 2016
Here are some highlights from the July data for the Netflix ISP Speed Index, our monthly update on which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide the best prime-time Netflix streaming experience.
In Chile, Movistar rose from last place to No. 5 by delivering average monthly speeds of 2.45 Mbps, up from 1.73 Mbps in June. Claro broke into the Top 3 ISPs with speeds of 3.06 Mbps, up from 2.77 Mbps last month.
There continued to be a lot of movement in the Denmark rankings, with Stofa Bredband taking second place with an average monthly speed of 3.90 Mbps and TREFOR jumping three spots to No. 3 with speeds of 3.86 Mbps.
There was no major movement in the US index in July.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on a particular ISP and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times and fewer interruptions.
