Here is how Netflix describes how it breaks down the best Internet service providers:
The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs (internet service providers) around the globe, and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network.
Google Fiber came in 22nd overall and a company called Rise Broadband was the fastest Internet service provider that exclusively offered wireless Internet. Verizon DSL was the fastest DSL Internet from a provider that only offers DSL with 3.85 Mbps download speed.
