Netflix Releases Canada ISP Speed Index for March 2015

Netflix has announced its March ISP speed index for Canada, which ranks providers based on their average speeds for the “best prime-time” streaming experience, according to the company’s tests.

In Canada, TekSavvy continued its climb, increasing two spots to No. 10 with an average speed of 3.08 Mbps, up from 2.91 Mbps in February when it moved up one.

Based on the charge below, there are no major changes but we see Videotron jumping up one spot to third overall, while Teksavvy moved up two spots to tenth. MTS’ finer optic, along with TELUS and Distributel all dropped one spot:
