The Netflix ISP Speed Index lists the average prime time bitrate for Netflix content streamed to Netflix members during a particular month. Netflix calculate the average bitrate of its content in megabits per second (Mbps) streamed by its customers per ISP. Streaming via mobile networks is exempted from the measurements. The speed indicated in the Netflix ISP Speed Index is not a measure of the maximum throughput or the maximum capacity of an ISP.
