New Zealand Beats Australia in Netflix's Internet Speed Index

While Australians are watching an episode of Daredevil buffer repeatedly, it will come as cold comfort to know their friends across the Tasman Sea are probably enjoying the same video, uninterrupted.
On Monday night, Netflix launched its first Australia and New Zealand Speed Index — a service that measures the primetime Netflix performance of Internet service providers in all territories the streaming service operates. Australia had an average speed of 2.82 Megabits per second in April, but was firmly surpassed by New Zealand, with 3.17 Mbps. In a blog post announcing the launch, Netflix wrote that Australia ranked 18th out of the 29 countries it measured in April.
