Netflix says “all you need is a good WiFi connection” for iPhone 6 Plus users to see 1080p resolution, part of an update that was started the moment Apple announced the new iPhone models. The app’s support for these larger iPhone models mean more titles on screen, bigger images and better performance.

We just tested this update by loading up House of Cards on our iPhone 6 Plus over our WiFi connection and the video looked extremely crisp and clear.

Also, yesterday Netflix released their October 2014 ISP speed index for Canada, and as you can see below Telus saw a jump up three spots, while SaskTel, MTS and Eastlink also improved. Videotron, Distributel, Teksavvy and Eastlink DSL all saw a minor drop in the ranks.

    Surely 3.30 Mbps is wrong as a speed for a fiber optic service. It should be much faster. My current DSL connection gets 5 Mbps.

    It’s the average speed for *Netflix* streams only. It’s not a reflection of your ISP’s actual speed (a single Netflix stream *shouldn’t* be able to saturate even a lowly 5 Mbps connection), but rather what your ISP is able to pull/sustain from a Netflix content delivery network while sending it to you.

    I didn’t see this, but do they test in multiple cities or just one location?
