Bethpage, NY (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
Earlier today, Netflix released its June Netflix ISP Speed Index, which named Optimum as the top ranking major ISP for the sixth consecutive month, underscoring a superior Netflix experience for Optimum customers. The Netflix rankings make it clear – Optimum delivers the best Netflix viewing experience of any major Internet service provider in the country. The Netflix ISP Speed Index is based on the average speed for Netflix streams among ISPs across the nation. Optimum’s ranking reflects Netflix video streams delivered over both Optimum Online’s wired service and Optimum WiFi, the nation’s largest and most-advanced WiFi network with more than 80,000 indoor and outdoor hotspots.
Optimum has a direct network connection to Netflix that delivers the highest quality video, including Netflix Super HD, the best experience delivered by Netflix. Super HD content includes the upcoming Netflix Original Series, Orange is the New Black, a comedic drama set in a women's prison from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan. When the new series debuts its first season on July 11, Optimum is the only major ISP in the Tri-State area that will deliver the series in the best and fastest Netflix viewing experience.
“Optimum consistently delivers the best quality Netflix experience in our area. Once again, for the sixth consecutive month Optimum has been ranked as the highest-quality Netflix experience from any major ISP in the country,” said Gemma Toner, senior vice president of broadband product management for Cablevision. “The Netflix ISP Speed Index shows that the top choice in the Tri-State area is Optimum. Not only do we deliver the fastest Netflix experience, but we also provide Optimum customers at home or those using Optimum WiFi on the go with access to Super HD and 3D entertainment, which is not available from other providers like FiOS and DirecTV.”

Netflix’s video library now resides in the Optimum network for the fastest delivery possible.
