The Netflix ISP Speed Index measures the peak performance of individual ISPs for the Netflix service, and is not a measure of the overall performance of other services or data transmitted over the provider’s Internet network. Faster performance for the Netflix service usually means better picture quality, faster loading times, and fewer playback interruptions.
