We seriously need to step up out game: New Zealand has better internet than Australia. What’s going on here?
On its blog Netflix revealed its ISP Speed Index, naming and shaming Australia’s worst ISPs for Netflix, and pretty much confirming what we all know: Australia has some pretty bad internet.
Compared to the 29 countries currently using Netflix, Australia is ranked 19, behind New Zealand which is sitting pretty at 14.
According to Netflix, however, there is room for improvement. Higher than expected consumer demand for the Netflix service apparently impacted these numbers a bit, so we can expect better performance going forward.
But for those of you who want to check out which ISPs are running best on Netflix, you can check it out below…
