The Indonesian Telkom reached a new milestone in November regarding the ISP performance index. We update this index each month to find out which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer the best prime-time Netflix streaming experience.
Telkom went from 1 to 2.8 megabits per second (Mbit/s), an improvement of 1.8 Mbit/s over the previous month. This increase enabled Indonesia to register the biggest increase in November, with average speeds increasing from 0.6 to 3.0 Mbit/s.
Three other countries also reported growth in November. Guatemala, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan have seen their average speed increase by 0.2 Mbit/s.
In Asia, the Vietnamese VNPT recorded a drop of 0.4 Mbit/s to 3.4 Mbit/s.
Four countries recorded a decline. Bolivia, Costa Rica and Vietnam fell 0.2 Mbit/s to 3.2 Mbit/s. Paraguay, which was one of the best performing countries last month, also saw its average speed drop from 0.2 Mbps to 3.4 Mbps.
The best-performing ISPs maintained their average throughput of 3.8 Mbps last month.
30 countries and regions were at their best in November. Eight of the nine newcomers last month – Finland, Malaysia, Canada, India, Ireland, Panama, Italy and South Korea – returned to their highest levels in November. They are Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States, All of which recorded an average speed of 3.6 Mbit/s.
The ISP Performance Index only pertains to Netflix service during prime time. This is not a general performance measure including other services/data that are likely to be transmitted over the ISP’s network. Higher performance on Netflix generally translates to better picture quality, shorter startup times, and fewer interruptions. We have also created a separate tool to check your current download performance: Visit https://FAST.com from any Internet browser or download Fast Speed TestOS or Android App.
