Netflix ISP Speed Index for June
Here are some highlights from the June 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 the U.S., there was much movement in the index. Cox moved to the top spot with an average speed of 3.58 Megabits per second (Mbps) and Verizon FiOS slipped to No. 3 with an average speed of 3.43 Mbps. Cablevision came in second, with an average speed of 3.57 Mbps. Bright House and Time Warner Cable also slipped in the rankings, dropping three and two spots, respectively.
In New Zealand, Spark continued its climb, rising two spots to fourth place with an average speed of 3.46 Mbps, up from 3.17 Mbps last month. Call Plus fell two spots with an average speed of 3.06 Mbps, down from 3.30 Mbps last month.
In France, Bouygues Telecom took the top spot with an average speed of 3.86 Mbps.
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.
