Netflix Performance on Top ISP Networks


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Netflix, who are now obviously streaming video content to a huge number of users, has published their unique insight into the performances of the major U.S. and Canadian broadband providers. Charter ranks best, Clearwire worst, and my own ISP, Time Warner, is among the top four or five (I guess?). Clearly, it’s a less-than-subtle attempt to goad the poorer-performing providers into improving their service, and to establish the question of “How well does Netflix work on your ISP?” as a metric for how consumers choose providers. See the data here.

  1. Yeah, it’d be great if anyone actually had a freakin’ choice about their ISP. In most places there’s only one real option. Well, I guess Clearwire is also in most places, but that’s not a serious option.
