November ISP rankings for UK and Ireland

Our 30 million members view over 1 billion hours of Netflix per month, so we have very reliable data for consumers to compare ISPs in terms of real world performance.

Starting this month, we’ll publish monthly rankings of ISPs in the UK and Ireland, based upon their actual performance across all Netflix streams.

The average performance is well below the peak performance due to a variety of factors including home Wi-Fi, a wide variety of devices with different capabilities, and a variety of encodes that Netflix uses for streaming TV shows and movies. The relative ranking, however, is an accurate indicator of the quality and consistency of internet access typically experienced across all users, homes, and applications.
