Netflix shows off ISP Speed Index for July; Google Fiber wins Netflix has released their July data of the "Netflix ISP Speed Index," showing off which ISPs "provide the best Netflix streaming experience."
Posted below is the U.S. index, but there are maps for other countries, as well, here.

The company compiles the data from all of its 36 million Netflix subscribers. The company says its members stream over 1 billion hours of TV and movies per month, meaning the data has a pretty solid set to reference.

Google Fiber offers the best experience, by a long shot, which is none too surprising given it is far and away the fastest consumer Internet available.

Here in Arizona, Cox and Century Link dominate the market. I have always had fast internet with Cox at home, however Century Link at work just plain sucks. Century Link is ok at my brothers house but nothing special. So being around both of those providers for over 10 years, the numbers above sound accurate to me!

I can't complain about Cox@home either. I pay for 30/15 and I get about 30/20 most of the time. It's expensive, but not out of sight.
They do have a 300GB limit per month but they are VERY up front about it and provide a handy bandwidth meter.
I watch Youtube all evening and have nary a problem.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
