Five ISP services in Asia posted increases for the month of March in the Netflix ISP Speed Index, a monthly update on which ISPs provide the best prime-time Netflix streaming experience.
Vietnam’s VNPT jumped 0.2 megabits per second (Mbps) to 3.4 Mbps. After dropping 0.2 Mbps last month, Vectant increased from 0.2 Mbps to 2.8 Mbps in Japan. Zajil Telecom in Kuwait recorded a similar spike. Fiberlink increased from 0.2 Mbps to 2.6 Mbps in Pakistan and Telcom in Indonesia increased from 0.2 Mbps to 3 Mbps.
Perhaps due to this increase, Indonesia’s national average also increased from 0.2 Mbps to 3.2 Mbps.
Four ISP services in Latin America also saw improvement. Cablecolor from Guatemala, Airtec from Venezuela, Antel from Chile and Copaco from Paraguay increased by 0.2 Mbps to 3 Mbps, 3 Mbps, 2.6 Mbps and 2 Mbps, respectively.
Despite Copaco’s surge, which followed a 0.2 Mbps drop in February, Paraguay’s national average fell from 0.2 Mbps to 3.4 Mbps. Seventeen other regions including Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Finland, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa and Uruguay also saw their average decrease of 0.2 Mbps.
Top performing ISPs fell from 3.8 Mbps to 3.6 Mbps in March because of the average speed needed to achieve the same performance as Netflix in prime time.
Twenty one countries registered this top speed including Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Hong Kong, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, Panama, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand. , , UK and USA.
