No surprises about Snap - they were one of the first major players to install the OpenConnect platform in their network.

I find the reported averages somewhat curious considering full quality 1080p "Full HD" looks like this:




EDIT: Looks like my tweet embed was a bit of a fail. Hoping an admin can help fix this?

Brilliant now the providers will fight to improve their connections. I'm on spark and have no problems to be fair with netflix.

To be meaningful, I feel these sorts of graphs need to break down by service type. Lumping 100Mbps fibre users in with rural DSL users on a congested conklin, for example, doesn't really give a fair indication to either service, and an ISPs cross section of users will have a greater impact than the quality of a specific service. An ISP with 50 fibre users and 5 ADSL users should show higher average, for example, than an ISP with 20 fibre users and 50 ADSL users, even though their specific service types might be pretty much identical performance to their competitor's offering.

eg the Vodafone stats are a combination of DSL, fibre, and cable.  Cable has performed badly this year, but these bad stats are buried in an average figure

Read the small print below the table: "The Netflix ISP Speed Index 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."

As mentioned above, it would good to see a break down by connection types just like the US one.

those stats are basically worthless for comparing ISPs (from a consumer point of view)

At least the youtube HD verified ones break down the ISPs by connection type i.e. VDSL vs ADSL etc (in some cases)

But these ones don't really tell you anything beyond:

"Snap, Vodafone, and Orcon have a larger proportion of their base on VDSL/UFB/Cable. Spark has most of the ADSL1 customers"


If MyRepublic* were on there they would likely be top, since they only sell UFB.  But that doesn't mean their UFB is better than any other ISP's UFB.


*I assume they are missing because they don't have enough customers. Or maybe, because they enable 'Fibre TV' by default, it means all their customers will go straight to US Netflix (so won't be counted in the Netflix NZ list) - whereas other global mode ISPs have it as opt-out (so their customers will go to Netflix NZ by default).

IDK, maybe they don't even have a way of turning Fibre TV off. Would be interesting to see.
