Netflix Offers New ISP Streaming Ranking Page
Another Nudge to Join New Netflix CDN
Netflix has expanded the company's "naming and shaming" of ISP streaming performance with a new website dedicated to ranking ISP streaming performance around the world
. The new website makes it easier to glimpse top performers globally. It also applies added pressure on ISPs to join Netflix's new Open Connect Content Delivery Network
so users can view the company's new "Super HD" and 3D streams. Joining the network is free, but ISPs have complained that Netflix is witholding content to gain a business edge -- the exact thing ISPs have frequently taken network neutrality heat for. Cox, who just coined Netflix's CDN, found themselves flying five spots up the rankings this month.
