Here is April data for the Netflix ISP Speed Index, our monthly update on which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide the best prime-time Netflix streaming experience.
This month, Australia and New Zealand joined the speed index, ranking 17 and 13, respectively on the list of 29 countries we rank. Performance for Australian ISPs was impacted by consumer demand exceeding the forecasts Netflix provided. We are working closely with these ISPs and expect performance to improve in the coming months. For April, TPG topped the ranking in Australia with an average speed of 3.36 Megabits per second (Mbps). For New Zealand, Snap led with an average speed of 3.77 Mbps.
In the U.S., Cox continued its climb, taking the No. 2 position in the ranking with an average speed of 3.49 Mbps. Cox’s speeds have been steadily increasing, from 3.11 Mbps in November 2014.
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.
