If you are a Netflix fan or a fan of streaming content from any other over-the-top (OTT) platform, you need a solid broadband connection for a seamless viewing experience. Netflix measures the primetime performance of its application on an Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) network and then lists it on the speed hierarchy basis. For the month of October 2021, Netflix has mentioned that nine ISPs of India have made it to the top category providing the fastest broadband speeds in India. The higher the speed, the better the picture quality and a quicker start time. Companies such as Excitel, Airtel Xstream Fiber, Tata Sky Broadband, Atria Convergence Technologies (ACT) have made it to the top of the list for October 2021.
