The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a monthly update from the company on which internet service providers (ISPs) are best equipped to deal with streaming the service’s content at peak hours.
Luxembourg and Spain rose five spots to 4th and 12th respectively. Meanwhile, the Netherlands and Sweden dropped five spots to 7th and 13th respectively.
Taiwan Mobile saw the largest increase on the index, with its average monthly speed increasing to 2.29 Mbps, up from 1.94 Mbps in April. Thailand’s Symphony saw speeds gained to a 3.66 Mbps average (up from 3.32 Mbps in April) while the Hungarian invitel reached a 3.22 Mbps average (up from 2.91 Mbps last month).
Netflix notes that the ISP Speed Index is a measure of Netflix performance during primetime, and is not reflective of the speed of other internet services.
Netflix also announced the launch of a small office in Sydney, with media sources in Australia suggesting that the company could start producing more original content from the country.
The company has not had local employees since launching in Australia in 2015. Netflix has hired Nick O’Donnell, formerly of LinkedIn, as its local director of public policy and former 20th Century Fox head of publicity, Sarah Haines, as head of Netflix’s Australia and New Zealand publicity for originals.
The team of 10 will operate out of a co-working space in the capital of New South Wales.
