Google Fiber, Cablevision & Cox Still Best For Netflix SpeedBy: Chris Crum - August 12, 2013
Netflix has released new data for its ISP Speed Index, which tracks the speed of service providers in the U.S. on a monthly basis. Here’s the July rankings:
The index is based on data from over 36 million Netflix members, who view over a billion hours of content on Netflix per month. The listed speeds are the average performance of all Netflix streams on the ISP’s network.
“The average performance is below the peak performance due to many factors including the variety of encodes Netflix uses to deliver the TV shows and movies as well as the variety of devices members use and home network conditions,” noes Netflix’s Joris Evers. “These factors cancel out when comparing across ISPs.”
The data from July doesn’t look too different from that of June, but Bright House moved up two spots, and Verizon DSL moved up one. Mediacom, AT&T U-Verse and AT&T DSL each dropped one spot.
