JioFiber Lagging Behind Airtel Broadband, ACT Fibernet and Other Operators In Speed Index

Published by

When it comes to measuring the speed of broadband service providers and ISPs, there are a few tools that people rely upon in the market. Some of the popular names include Ookla, OpenSignal and more. However, Netflix ISP Index is also a way for the people to see which of the broadband service providers are offering the best speeds and service. This is especially useful for people who look forward to streaming Netflix on their broadband connection and do not want to compromise on that. As such, the Netflix ISP Speed Index measures the prime time Netflix performance across the various broadband service providers. Now, Netflix releases the ranking of these broadband operators every month,

and since the last few months, these ranking have been pretty volatile after being consistent for months on end. And, we suspect that a lot of it has to do with the new competition in the broadband sector. Although this time there is not much change in the rankings of the broadband service providers, we do get some pointers about which broadband service providers are doing a great job at providing high-speed Netflix services to their subscribers.

Ranking in October Remains Same But Speeds Increase

Now the thing to note about this month’s result of the Netflix ISP Speed Index is that all the broadband service providers have witnessed a substantial increase in their indexes and that translates to an increase in speeds as well. However, that hasn’t translated to any change in the ranks, meaning that even though these broadband service providers have improved their speeds, the level of competition between these operators has remained the same.

Now at the top of the list, this time as well is ranking 7 Star

Digital. The broadband service provider is mostly situated in Mumbai and the nearby regions, and it has maintained its position. The service provider has increased its speed from 3.46 Mbps to 3.74 Mbps, which is an appreciable increase looking at the previous trends. On the second number is Spectra, which mostly caters to regions around Delhi, but has now expanded operations to other cities as well. Spectra has also improved its speeds from 3.43 Mbps to 3.72 Mbps. Now, on the third rank is Airtel Broadband, or which is now being called as Airtel Xstream Fibre. Airtel’s ranking has also stayed the same at third place, and the operator has improved its speed from 3.37 Mbps to 3.64 Mbps.

On the fourth and fifth position are ACT Fibernet and Reliance JioFiber. While ACT has taken its speed from 3.3 Mbps to 3.63 Mbps, Reliance JioFiber’s speeds have gone up from 3.23 Mbps to 3.63 Mbps.

 

ACT Fibernet and 7 Star Digital In Advantage

It can be seen that in the month of September to October, all of the broadband operators have definitely made improvements in their speeds and it is more than what they have been made in a month on month basis since a long time. It was first in April 2019 that Reliance JioFiber was surpassed by 7 Star Digital, and since then, Reliance JioFiber has been declining in the rankings of Netflix ISP Speed Index. A part of the reason why this has happened can be because of the shared bandwidth, which the users are experiencing as more and more people get JioFiber connections. On the other hand, ACT Fibernet has also improved its positions on the ranking table, thus getting ahead of Reliance JioFiber.
