The Netflix ISP Speed Index is among the most relied speed tests when it comes to gauging the quality and speed of Internet Broadband services (ISPs), and Jio GigaFiber has been ranked consistently higher than its peers in the Netflix speed index. Until April 2019, the Jio GigaFiber has topped the list for the eighth consecutive times. The broadband service offered the same speed, i.e. 3.49 Mbps, as in June back then. However, 7 Star Digital and Spectranet have started providing impressive speed to overtake Jio GigaFiber.

Following GigaFiber on the list is its arch-rival Airtel broadband service. The latter was placed in the fourth position with 3.35Mbps, which slightly slower than its previous 3.39Mbps speed. Other ISPs in the list include Atria Convergence Technologies (ACT) with 3.24Mbps of average speed at the fifth position, YouBroadband with 3.17Mbps speed at sixth, Hathway with 2.97 at seventh, and D-VoiS at eighth with 2.97Mbps speed.
