Only one service posted an increase in June on the Netflix ISP Speed Index, our monthly update on which ISPs provide the best prime time Netflix streaming experience.
Ecuador’s ETAPA DSL/WiMAX surged 0.4 Megabits per second (Mbps) from 2.4 to 2.8 Mbps. This was the second month in a row this service rose 0.4 Mbps.
After jumping 0.4 Mbps in May, the Philippines Royal Cable service fell 0.4 Mbps from 3 to 2.6 Mbps.
Elsewhere in Asia, two different ISPs in Vietnam saw decreases in June. FPT Telecom and Viettel each dipped 0.4 Mbps, falling to 3 and 2.6 Mbps, respectively.
In Africa, South Africa’s Neotel decreased 0.4 Mbps from 1.8 to 1.4 Mbps.
Likely in part due to its two ISP drops, Vietnam was one of eight countries and regions whose average fell by 0.2 Mbps, also including Bolivia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Sweden, and Taiwan.
Meanwhile, the country averages for El Salvador and Austria increased by 0.2 Mbps.
Thirteen countries and regions were in the top performance-tier in the month of June. Australia, Belgium, Hong Kong, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand and the UK all registered an average speed of 3.6 Mbps.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of primetime 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.
