How fast is your ISP? Nexflix knows.
The Netflix Tech Blog has released some pretty interesting numbers. It seems that offering long duration, streaming video for the last few years has given them some good insight into how fast many different Internet Service Providers actually are over time. The numbers on the two charts below obviously represent average speeds, but it’s a really cool way to find where your ISP ranks. Lucky for me, Time Warner (the cable provider hear in Albany) is near the top of the US chart. Unlucky for all of us – Canada’s ISPs kick our butts. Even their slowest would rank about 4th best in the United States.
Time to get your shit together, US internet companies. Netflix really does have your numbers.
