Netflix’s Hits Milestone of 250 Million Speed Tests Worldwide


Last May, Netflix launched, a speed test site for the public and its members to test their Internet speeds worldwide based from the company’s servers.

Fast forward over a year later and Netflix has announced has crossed a milestone of over a quarter billion speed tests run, from around the world, as of a few days ago. Netflix explains tests on increased by roughly 10 percent each month since its launch.

Netflix data shows the top countries generating Internet speed tests on include Canada, plus the U.S., Brazil, India, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Italy, Great Britain and Egypt.

As for tests run on the mobile browsers or the iOS or Android apps, Netflix says it’s about a 50/50 split. Most speed tests are run throughout the day but evenings see a spike during primetime. But in places like Japan, speed tests are more popular later at night around 9-11PM, while in India, tests spike during 9-11AM local time.

Netflix says to celebrate this milestone, they’ve launched new ways for customers and users to share their results on social media. New Facebook and Twitter buttons lets users boast about their Internet speeds to friends and family easily, as seen below:
