In March, five Asian ISPs added the Netflix ISP Speed Index, a monthly update by which ISPs provide the best Netflix streaming experience.
Vietnam’s VNPT rose 0.2 megabits per second (Mbps) to 3.4 megabits per second. After declining 0.2 megabits per second last month, Japan’s VECTANT rose 0.2 megabits per second to 2.8 megabits per second, and Kuwait’s Zajil Telecom recorded the same increase. Pakistan’s Fiberlink service increased 0.2Mbps to 2.6Mbps, and Indonesia’s Telkom increased 0.2Mbps to 3Mbps.
Perhaps due in part to this collision, the Indonesian country average also increased from 0.2 Mbps to 3.2 Mbps.
Four Latin American ISPs also improved their services. CableColor in Guatemala, Airtek in Venezuela, Entel in Chile and Copaco in Paraguay increased from 0.2Mbps to 3Mbps and 3Mbps to 2.6Mbps and 2Mbps.
Despite Copaco’s rise, which came after a decline of 0.2 Mbps in February, the Paraguayan nation’s average fell 0.2 Mbps to 3.4 Mbps. Average drops in seventeen other regions, including Bolivia, Brazil, and Canada Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Finland, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa and Uruguay were also 0.2 Mbps.
The best performing ISPs dropped from 3.8Mbps to 3.6Mbps in March, as the average bitrates needed to achieve the same top performance as Netflix fell.
This top speed was recorded in 21 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Hong Kong, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, Panama, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Thailand. the United Kingdom, Great Britain and the United States.
