Netflix ISP Speed Index for September 2019

September saw sizable movement in Saudi Arabia on the Netflix ISP Speed Index, our monthly update on which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide the best prime time Netflix streaming experience.

Saudi Arabia jumped five spots on the country rankings, rising from 48 in August to 43. This was likely at least partially boosted by a notable increase for the country’s Mobily service, which rose 0.31 Megabits per second (Mbps) to a 3.23 Mbps average, up from 2.92 Mbps last month.

Taiwan’s KBro saw an even larger rise for the month of September. KBro jumped 0.7 Mbps to a 3.03 average, up from 2.33 Mbps in August.

Nearby, the news was not as good for Thailand’s CS LoxInfo service, which dropped 0.43 Mbps to an average of 3.31 Mbps, down from 3.74 Mbps last month. However, Thailand still managed to climb 5 spots on the country rankings from 19 to 14.

Elsewhere in the world, Israel’s 099.net also posted a decrease. The service fell 0.53 Mbps to a 2.66 Mbps average, down from 3.19 Mbps in August. Indonesia’s MNC Play also saw a decline, dropping 0.35 Mbps to a 2.56 Mbps average, down from 2.91 Mbps in August.

Like Saudi Arabia and Thailand, Greece also saw an uptick on the country rankings for September. The country moved to 36, up from 40 last month.

The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of primetime 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.
