Netflix’s ISP Speed Index: Spectranet fastest internet service provider with 2.17 Mbps speed, pips Bharti Airtel

By October 16th, 2016 AT 4:29 PM

Spectranet has emerged as the faster internet service provider (ISP) with 2.17 Mbps speed in the Netflix’s ISP Speed Index, piping India’s leading telco Bharti Airtel, which had 2.10 Mbps broadband speed. The index ranking shows that Bharti Airtel has lost its first position to Spectanet due to decline in its broadband speeds. The telco had earlier topped the chart with 2.21 Mbps speeds, while Spectranet improved its speeds from 2.13 Mbps to 2.17 Mbps.


Spectranet just provides the broadband service over fiber, while Bharti Airtel’s broadband services are available through fiber, cable, DSL and wireless. Netflix’s ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs around the globe. The index however is not a measure of overall performance for other services or data that may travel across the specific ISP network.

ATRIA Convergence Technologies climbed one spot up to grab the third spot with 1.71 Mbps. 7 Star Digital stood at fourth spot, down one position with 1.63 Mbps speed.

Reliance Communications climbed two rankings up to reach fifth spot with 1.62 Mbps broadband speed, against its earlier speeds of 1.55 Mbps. Hathway maintained its sixth ranking with 1.55 Mbps broadband speed.

D-VoiS climbed to reach seventh spot with 1.52 Mbps speed, followed by YOU Broadband with 1.51 mbps speeds. YOU Broadband was earlier at the fifth spot with 1.67 Mbps speed.

Tata Communications maintained its ninth ranking with 1.35 Mbps speed, followed by Syscon Infoway and Tikona with 1.35 and 1.22 Mbps speeds, respectively.

State-run telcos BSNL and MTNL maintained their bottom positions with 1.15 and 1.05 Mbps speeds, respectively.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index lists the average prime time bitrate for Netflix content streamed to Netflix members during a particular month. For ‘Prime Time’, it calculates the average bitrate of Netflix content in megabits per second (Mbps) streamed by Netflix members per ISP.

“We measure the speed via all available end user devices. For a small number of devices, we cannot calculate the exact bitrates and streaming via cellular networks is exempted from our measurements. The speed indicated in the Netflix ISP Speed Index is not a measure of the maximum throughput or the maximum capacity of an ISP,” the company says.

Hmm, actually this might be a genuine pic because after some research I’ve found out that it has been posted by the same Arjun Hemrajani guy on Twitter who posted the 100 Mbps Jio Fiber speedtest few days ago. This dude here didn’t bother to mention the source of the image and I’ve seen such speedtests before thats why I was suspicious.
