Netflix has just announced its ISP Speed Index rating revealing that Bharti Airtel was the fastest internet service provider in the country for January 2017. With a speed of 2.25Mbps, Airtel managed to climb to the top spot leaving behind Spectranet whose speed was recorded to be 2.10Mbps.


Despite topping the chart, in comparison to previous Netflix’s ISP rating, Airtel's speed has decreased from 2.33Mbps to 2.25Mbps. The same holds for Spectranet as well. It’s speed diminished to 2.10Mbps from 2.34Mbps.

7 Star Digital grabbed the 3rd position with 2.06Mbps. It’s worth mentioning that the ISP had climbed 4 spots by improving its speed from 1.77Mbps to 2.06Mbps to close in at 3rd place.

ATRIA Convergence Technologies, on the other hand, dropped to 4th position with a decrease in speed from 2.18Mbps to 2.00Mbps. While Hathway moved to the 5th position from 6th with speed raising from 1.81Mbps to 1.93Mbps.

It is worth noting that Netflix’s ISP Speed Index is calculated only based on the Prime Time Netflix performance of any given ISP around the globe. What this essentially means is that the overall performance of a specific ISP used for other services stays irrelevant.

The Netflix ISP index takes into consideration the Fiber, Cable, DSL, Satellite, and Wireless internet via all the available end user devices to calculate the “average prime time bitrate for Netflix content streamed to Netflix members during a particular month,” in terms of Mbps. However, if there are only a small number of devices, it’s not possible for it to calculate the exact bitrates. Also, it excludes the content streamed via cellular networks in its measurements.
