The Most Consistently Fast ISP in America

With 30 million members who view over 1 billion hours of video per month…Netflix has unique insight into the ISP pipes that are carrying their content.

Beginning this month, Netflix will publicly rank the performance of the ISPs carrying Netflix streams.

Google Fiber is now the most consistently fast ISP in America, according to actual user experience on Netflix streams in November.

Broadly, cable shows better than DSL. AT&T U-verse, which is a hybrid fiber-DSL service, shows quite poorly compared to Verizon Fios, which is pure fiber. Charter moved down two positions since October. Verizon mobile has 40% higher performance than AT&T mobile. Source: November 2012 ISP Rankings for the USA

  1. i wonder how much verizon paid netflix for that. verizon is the slowest high speed connection i have ever tried. i had fios once, it was less than half the speed of comcast. the best speed i could get with fios was 13.5 mbps. every time i run the test with comcast i get over 35mbps. the government should sue verizon for false advertising. they keep conning people into switching to their crappy service, which by the way has the worst customer service i have ever had the displeasure of dealing with, and should therefore be shut down. they are the amway of the internet companies. all of their claims are bs and they treat their customers like crap because to many people think that that is how a big company is supposed to treat you. i am not saying that comcast has fantastic customer service but verizons is worse. when i had fios i ran test on a lot of different sites, including pc pitstop, and it always came out the same. the best speed i got was 13.5 and in some cases and on some days it was less than that. i check my computers on pc pitstop at least once a month and always get speeds in excess of 35mbps. in short, verizon is the worst possible isp you can get.

  2. Why am I not surprised AT&T Mobile is at the bottom? Still locked into a mobile contract for another year. Countless problems as they deploy LTE in Louisville, KY.

    Our so-called “independent” cable internet provider, Insight Broadband, was bought by TimeWarner. Many routes which used to go direct to Level 3’s network – now traffic snakes through the “road runner” network with additional hops prior to hitting an interchange to Level 3 or another network en-route to its destination (and back).

    The hybrid Fiber / DSL last mile ATT U-Verse is the only other choice in the market thanks to the city giving exclusive cable rights to Insight.
