Every month, Netflix updates its ISP Speed Index to show how each provider fared in the preceding month. The rankings rarely change, especially in the US where Google Fiber is always first.

Netflix ranks the US on par with Ireland and slightly above Mexico in the bottom of the country-by-country averages. The company’s ISP Speed Index is based on data from the over 40 million Netflix members who stream over 1 billion hours of TV shows and movies each month.
