[NF] Netflix Charts Performance on Top ISP Networks. - Page 2

post #11 of 35
I'm kinda wondering what the main contributors to this number are, the client's bandwith (what they pay their ISP to provide), ISP specific constraints (ISPs won't let more than X traffic pass through to a customer from Netflix? or their backbone can't handle it?), or something else?

I hate charts like that. I'm color blind and those lines all look the same.

Can someone please tell me which spot is Verizon in?

Verizon is pretty much right in the middle. It's the one that starts just over the 2,000 mark.

In the grand scheme of things I don't think that's too much data to constitute charging the company that handles Netflix's streaming. *Ahem* Comcast...

I don't understand why internet providers make such a big deal out of streaming movies. They advertise X kb/s connections at X price. They should deliver the advertised service.

They are just upset that some people actually try to use the service that they are paying for...

Around here they aren't that bad. Their service isn't bad, and their internet service doesn't randomly give me 1.5mb/s down instead of the 7mb/s down that I'm supposed to get (ATT does this to me every couple months and insists it's a problem with my computer, even though it's every computer in the house).

Its because they lose money from On Demand and pay per view services, and even premium channels.

We've never had a problem with our Comcast connection. I agree with Vulcan, perhaps this is more of a "Good job, better keep it up" sort of release. This comment makes me think that is the case:

We'll update these charts monthly
Also, what speed is required for no buffer viewing at 1080p? It would be interesting to see which providers are dishing out enough power.

Hmmm, just what I've always suspected. Clearwire should've been named Crapwire, and my move from Clearwire to Comcast was a good one - Comcast smokes the competition!

Worst part is, Clearwire actually locks you into a 2 year contract that auto-renews for another 2 years if you don't call up in the 30 day period just before the first contract expires. When I found that out, I contacted the BBB and demanded I be released from the contract.

I love Comcast. Always get above-advertised speeds where I am at. Always.

Another surprise to me is that Verizon, despite its FIOS links, is middle of the pack. If I were a Verizon customer with FIOS, I would be a little peeved by this mediocrity.
I think it's because Verizon also does wireless connections through their 3G/4G (?) network. Averaged out, the FIOS and the wireless, it's in the middle.
