The January 2019 Netflix Speed Index for Australia is out and for 12 months straight (February 2018 to January 2019), Telstra has ranked #1.
With consumers streaming more content than ever before, Telstra has been working to make sure our customers are able to get the best possible experience when watching video from a range of content services including Netflix.
Today the January 2019 Netflix Speed Index was released with Telstra ranked #1 on the leader board for the 12th month in a row from February 2018 to January 2019.
The Netflix results reflect Telstra customers enjoying the fastest speeds available in Australia, combined with access to Australia’s most extensive and sophisticated caching capacity in the region. The function of ‘caching’ is to store copies of Netflix content to enable streaming from a location closer to consumers.
We’re pleased that the January 2019 Netflix result reflects the real-world difference that Telstra customers can experience from our ongoing network leadership and our efforts to deliver a better streaming experience. This result follows on from Ookla’s naming of Telstra as the fastest fixed network in the 2018 Speedtest® Awards by Ookla®.
Delivering the very best for our customers is about more than just download speeds. Telstra’s innovative products and devices, including our Smart Modem, Smart Wi-Fi Booster and Telstra TV, all help ensure our customers can enjoy the best streaming experience. This #1 ranking reflects the investments we have made to deliver the streaming experiences our customers expect.
