The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of Netflix’s prime-time performance at a particular ISP, not the overall performance of other services/data that may travel on that ISP’s network. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, faster start times, and fewer interruptions. We’ve also built a separate tool to check your current download performance: Visit https://FAST.com in any internet browser or download the FAST file speed testiOS NS Android application.
