JioFiber is facing competition where broadband speed is concerned. While JioFiber continues to lead the speed as measured on the Netflix ISP index in March 2021, it is also joined by other Internet service providers (ISP)s like AirtelXStream, ACT, and Tata Sky broadband who also gave an average speed of 3.6 Mbps. JioFIber has been leading the Netflix ISP charts for the past six months and has introduced a new offer of giving extra validity of 15 days and 30 days on semi-annual and annual broadband plans.
According to the streaming giant, the Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime-time Netflix performance on particular internet service providers (ISPs) around the globe. Netflix also notes that the ISP speed index is not a measure of overall performance for other services or data that may travel across the specific ISP network.
Last year, Jio launched fiber broadband plans starting at Rs 399 after stay-at-home work culture became a norm for people across the country. Other ISPs followed suit. AirtelXStream started giving unlimited internet and also started offering its broadband plans from Rs 399. Excitel, too, started offering plans for Rs 399 if subscribed for a year.
Coming back to Netflix ISP index, JioFiber, Airtel, ACT and Tata Sky broadband were followed by 7 Star Digital, Alliance Broadband, Excitel Broadband, GTPL, Hathway, SPECTRA, Syscon Infoway, and YOU Broadband on the second position which gave 3.2 Mbps speed.
Third on Netflix's ISP index was NXTDIGITAL's broadband service One Broadband which stood at 3 Mbps speed which was followed by government-owned telco Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), D-Vois and Tikona with 2.8 Mbps speed. MTNL was at the bottom of the ISP Index with a 2.4 Mbps speed.
Coming to the Country Averages index, India ranked second on the list with 3.2 Mbps speed along with Argentina, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Greece, Italy, Paraguay, Poland, Taiwan, Trinidad, Tobago, and Uruguay.
