Netflix, the world’s most popular video streaming platform, recently launched the Internet Service Provider (ISP) Speed Index. According to the report, by August 2021, Claro topped Colombia’s internet speed with a rate of 3.4 Mbps, followed by ETB, with 3.2, and in third and fourth places Movistar and Tigo, both with 2.8.
The Netflix benchmark also indicated that Claro delivered the highest data speed in the past six months with an average of 3.26Mbps, above ETB, with 3.06 and Tigo, with 2.83. The report also measured indicators of other telecom companies providing internet service in the country, including regional companies such as Emcali. To view the full report, click here.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of Netflix’s prime-time performance on select Internet Service Providers (ISPs) around the world. It is not a measure of the overall performance of other services/data that may travel over a particular network of your ISP.
