Netflix recently updated its ISP Speed Index, showing the best performing internet providers when it comes to delivering the streaming service’s content to South African viewers.
The updated index, which takes into account Netflix’s new encoding formats, measures “which ISPs provide the best prime time Netflix streaming experience”.

This isn’t a measurement of how the internet providers perform in terms of other services — but specifically how they perform when it comes to delivering Netflix content during busy periods in that region.
The Index has leaderboards for regions across the globe. But we’re specifically interested in how South African ISPs perform.
