Best Broadband for streaming Netflix in NZ

Best Broadband for streaming Netflix in NZ
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

The best broadband plans for streaming Netflix needs to deliver on different aspects to downloading and gaming.  Your broadband plan should have an unlimited data cap for all three of these practices as you will need large amounts of data when you carry out any of these undertakings.  The average New Zealand household now consumes over 173Gb of Broadband Data a month (Chorus Download Stats – October 2017) and if your household is a big Netflix household than you are likely to consume even more data than that, especially if there are a number of different devices streaming Netflix data.

The most important considerations for Netflix other than data caps are speed.  Most broadband providers measure "speed" by bandwidth - the amount of data that your connection can upload or download at any one time.  The most common fibre connection speed in New Zealand is a 100Mbs connection.  This should be able to download 12.5 megabytes of data a second which means it offers plenty of bandwidth to Netflix a film or download a large file in a small amount of time.  Even with a high level of bandwidth, at peak times with multiple devices streaming Netflix you may suffer from buffering.  Netflix have started to produce their own reporting called the ISP Speed Index.  The Netflix ISP Speed Index is a measure of prime time Netflix performance on particular ISPs (internet service providers) around the globe, and not a measure of overall performance for other services/data that may travel across the specific ISP network – so if Netflix is your thing then you can visit their reports here: https://ispspeedindex.netflix.com/country/new-zealand/

The most consistent performer on the Netflix ISP Speed Index is MyRepublic.  Their plans and support are tailored towards the Netflix experience so if you love your Netflix then check out their plans here.  For other Netflix broadband options please see the pages below.
