Netflix January ISP Rankings


Below are the January Netflix rankings for US Internet service providers (ISPs).

Our more than 33 million members view over 1 billion hours of TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix per month. We use the data associated with the streaming experience of our members to compare ISPs and give you insight into which ISPs deliver the best Netflix experience.

Note: These ratings reflect the average performance of all Netflix streams on each ISP's network. The average is well below the peak performance due to many factors including home Wi-Fi, the variety of devices our members use, and the variety of encodes we use to deliver the TV shows and movies we carry. Those factors cancel out when comparing across ISPs, so these relative rankings are a good indicator of the consistent performance typically experienced across all users on an ISP network.

December ISP Rankings for the USA

Below are the December Netflix ISP rankings for US ISPs. As we announced last month, we will publish these on a monthly basis going forward. Our 30 million members view over 1 billion hours of Netflix per month and we use all of the data associated with their experiences to compare ISPs in terms of real world performance.

These ratings reflect the average performance of all Netflix streams on each ISP. The average is well below the peak performance due to many factors including home Wi-Fi, the variety of devices our members use, and the variety of encodes we use to deliver the TV shows and movies we carry.  Those factors cancel out when comparing across ISPs, so these relative rankings are a good indicator of the consistent performance typically experienced across all users on an ISP network and a great way to see which ISPs offer the best Netflix experience.

November ISP Rankings for the USA

Our 30 million members view over 1 billion hours of Netflix per month, so we have very reliable data for consumers to compare ISPs in terms of real world performance.


Starting today, we’ll publish monthly rankings of major ISPs based upon their actual performance across all Netflix streams. 

Google Fiber is now the most consistently fast ISP in America, according to actual user experience on Netflix streams in November.

Broadly, cable shows better than DSL. AT&T U-verse, which is a hybrid fiber-DSL service, shows quite poorly compared to Verizon Fios, which is pure fiber.  Charter moved down two positions since October.  Verizon mobile has 40% higher performance than AT&T mobile. 

The average performance is well below the peak performance due to a variety of factors including home Wi-Fi, a variety of devices, and a variety of encodes. The relative ranking, however, should be an accurate indicator of relative bandwidth typically experienced across all users, homes, and applications.
