Netflix just released its monthly update on Internet service provider speed data, ranking the top ISPs in terms of speed for its streaming service. This reflects the month of August.

The ISP Speed Index site and graphs have been redesigned.

In the U.S. Time Warner Cable climbed three spots to fifth place with an average speed of 3.53 Mbps, which is up from 3.37 a month ago. Brighthouse climbed two spots to number 4 with an average speed of 3.57 Mbps (up from 3.42). Here are the rankings for the U.S. and Canada.

"In Argentina, TeleRed jumped to third place, with an average speed of 2.24 Mbps, up from 1.81 Mbps in July," notes Netflix's Anne Marie Squeo. "In Ireland, Magnet grabbed the No. 1 spot, which UPC had held since May 2014. Magnet delivered an average speed of 3.36 Mbps in August, compared with 3.25 Mbps by UPC."

The ISP Speed Index now includes 28 countries. Netflix will add Japan next month bringing the total to 29. You can check out the site here.
