Fastweb tops Netflix ISP speed index for Italy

Tuesday 15 December 2015 | 08:56 CET | News
Broadband operator Fastweb topped the first ISP speed index for Italy published by Netflix since the video streaming service was launched on 22 October. Fastweb delivered an average speed of 3.59 Mbps in November, followed by Telecom Italia and Wind with 3.42 Mbps, Tiscali with 3.39 Mbps and Vodafone with 3.35 Mbps. The speed index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs and not a measure of peak speeds or overall performance of the network.
