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 May.

There wasn't a whole lot of change from April for the U.S. Numbers 8 and 9 - Suddenlink and Mediacom - flipflopped. That's about it.

Here's a look at the U.S. rankings:

Not a lot of change in Canada either:

"In New Zealand, Bigpipe fell three spots to seventh place with an average speed of 3.11 Mbps, down from 3.45 Mbps in last month’s inaugural ranking for the country," said Netflix's Anne Marie Squeo. "Trustpower and Spark each rose two spots, ranking fourth and sixth with speeds of 3.37 Mbps and 3.17 Mbps, respectively. Overall, New Zealand moved up three spots to No. 10 in our ranking of countries we track, with an average speed of 3.48 Mbps."

"In Germany, Kabel Deutschland returned to second place with an average speed of 4.00 Mbps, up from 3.81 Mbps last month," she added. "In Mexico, Cablevision Monterrey fell for a second month, dropping three spots in the ranking with an average speed of 2.37 Mbps in May, down from 2.84 Mbps in March."

You can get a look at the rankings for all regions Netflix tracks here.

Netflix announced that it will launch in Spain, Italy, and Portugal in October.
