    Netflix said it calculates the average bitrate of Netflix content, in Mbps, streamed by its members per ISP.
    1. ISP A: 10x 200mbs clients
    2. ISP B: 10x 100mbs clients

    Forgetting everything else that could slow it down (porn, cut cables, ****ty routers, ...) and working with pristine conditions then how exactly does 10 clients with 200mbs lines make an ISP the "fastest"?

    In fact you have 5x 1GBps clients on another isp now out performing that ISP just because their said average are higher.

    Or what if the all the users on ISP A just use a S3 to stream at a fraction of 200mbs because the device itself doesn't need full 200mbs?

    The whole measurement seems rather pointless to make a win say hey its that isp being the fastest...

    So an ISP that only offers fibre is on average "faster" than wireless or ADSL providers.... No **** Sherlock
