Spectranet top ISP on Netflix India with 2.17 Mbps speed


According to Netflix’s ISP Speed Index for India, Spectranet is the fastest ISP in the country with 2.17 Mbps followed by Airtel and ATRIA Convergence Technologies (ACT) with 2.10 Mbps and 1.71 Mbps speeds respectively. This particular reading is for April to September 2016.

The Netflix ISP Index calculates prime time Netflix performance on some ISPs worldwide, but is not a measure of overall performance of other internet services and data across that network. The Index takes into account fiber, cable, DSL, satellite and wireless internet including Airtel, 7 Star Digital, Reliance Communications, Tata Communications, BSNL, MTNL, Hathway, YOU Broadband, Tikona, Syscon Info and D-VoiS.

In September 2016, the national average of India was recorded to be at 1.71 Mbps. It is worth noting that Netflix is observing ISP speeds in India only since April 2016.

Airtel held top spot for a while, and BSNL held lowest spot

It is worth noting that Airtel had been at number one, Month-on-Month from April – August 2016 with a speed of over 2 Mbps. From September, Airtel dropped from its previous number one position with a speed of 2.21 Mbps. In the same month, BSNL was ranked as the slowest ISP with a speed of 1.05 Mbps. It is worth noting that BSNL has consistently been in the last position between June – September 2016.

According to this Index, only ISPs in the first and second positions have recorded a speed of over 2 Mbps between April to September 2016 with an exception of ACT at second position recording a speed of 1.97 Mbps in May 2016. All other ISPs recorded only a speed lower than 2 Mbps during the same period.

It is also worth noting that the highest speed during this period was recorded by Airtel with 2.23 Mbps in the month of June 2016 while the lowest speed was recorded by BSNL with 1.02 Mbps in June and July 2016.

Among the different countries in the world providing Netflix service, the index has ranked Switzerland first, Month-on-Month between April to September 2016. Switzerland recorded a speed of 3.96 Mbps and 4.08 Mbps in April and September 2016 respectively. With a speed of 3.94 Mbps in September 2016, Belgium has been ranked second.
