Google Fibre is the speed king for streaming video according to Netflix, which today released its first global Internet provider speed index.
However, despite being rated at a nominal one gigabit per second for downstream and upstream speed, Google Fibre comes in at a mere 3.35 megabits per second according to Netflix.
All the countries in Netflix's ISP index show avearge speeds below 3 megabits per second, with Mexico being the slowest at 1.65 megabits/s on average.
The data is collected from over 33 million members in eight countries who view over a billion hours worth of TV shows and movies from Netflix every month.
Due to the above high bandwidth requirements and soaring number of customers, Netflix started rolling out its own content delivery networks around the world in an effort to keep up with with demand.
Netflix is estimated to account for a third of all Internet traffic in North America currently.
In its latest Visual Networking Index forecast, Cisco estimates that by 2016, Internet video will make up for 55 per cent of all traffic.
