Two ISP services in Honduras posted increases in the month of April on theNetflix ISP Speed Index, our monthly update on which ISPs provide the best primetime Netflix streaming experience.
TEVISAT and Metronet in Honduras climbed by 0.2 Megabits per second (Mbps) to 2.2 and 2.8 Mbps, respectively. Elsewhere in Latin America, Venezuela’s Meganet also saw an improvement of 0.2 Mbps, rising from 2.6 to 2.8 Mbps.
One ISP in Europe saw April’s biggest gain. Austria’s A1 jumped by 0.4 Mbps to 3.2 Mbps, an improvement from last month’s 2.8 Mbps.
Despite strong gains by two Honduran ISPs, the country’s average fell by 0.2 Mbps to 2.8 Mbps. Other territories — including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, France, and India — also saw their averages decrease by 0.2 Mbps.
The highest performing ISPs in April moved from 3.6 Mbps to 3.4 Mbps, because the average bitrates needed to achieve the same primetime Netflix performance has decreased.
Twenty-seven countries reached the top performance group this month, up from 21 last month. Canada, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway are new entries for April’s top performance group. They are joined by last month’s top performance group, which include Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Hong Kong, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Panama, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the UK, and the US.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of primetime 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.
