Netflix Announces The Best ISPs For Streaming Netflix




Netflix_Web_LogoNetflix has posted their monthly Internet Service Provider (ISP) statistics for October 2015, and Verizon–FiOS is the top-performing ISP followed closely by the rest of the top 10.

Here are the top 10 ISPs as of October 2015 according to Netflix:

  1. Verizon–FiOS: 3.80 Mbps
  2. Cox: 3.73 Mbps
  3. Bright House: 3.72 Mbps
  4. Cablevision–Optimum: 3.71 Mbps
  5. Time Warner Cable: 3.62 Mbps
  6. Comcast: 3.61 Mbps
  7. Charter: 3.59 Mbps
  8. Mediacom: 3.57 Mbps
  9. Suddenlink: 3.51 Mbps
  10. AT&T–U-Verse: 3.47 Mbps

What is really surprising is the top 10 are separated by just 0.33 Mbps. This also marks a steady, if slow, growth over the last year from IPSs, like Comcast, who jumped from 3.05 Mbps in November 2014 to 3.59 Mbps. Others, like AT&T U-Verse, jumped from 2.86 Mbps in November 2014 to 3.47 Mbps in October 2015.

Back in November 2012 Verizon–FiOS was also the fastest ISP at just 2.19 Mbps, and Comcast was at 2.17 Mbps. So while growth may be steady sadly it is slower than many would like to see.

These slow Internet speeds may be why Netflix is willing to pay for priority access to networks like Comcast and others. Netflix is seeing a need to pay in order to ensure their customers get the content they are paying for.
