Here are some highlights from the October data for the Netflix ISP Speed Index
, our monthly update on which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provide the best prime-time Netflix streaming experience.
In the U.S
., Comcast jumped two spots to No. 6 with an average speed of 3.61 Megabits per second (Mbps), up from 3.52 Mbps a month ago. Mexico’s
Telecable continued to decline, falling two places to seventh with an average speed of 2.91 Mbps, down from 3.04 Mbps last month. The provider’s speeds have been declining since May.
, Eircom has reached No. 2 with an average speed of 3.11 Mbps, up from 3.08 Mbps last month. UPC fell one spot in the ranking to 3.10 Mbps from 3.20 Mbps in September.
Next month, we’ll be adding indices for Spain, Portugal and Italy where we launched service in October.

is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on a particular ISP and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times and fewer interruptions.
