It's the peering arrangements that cause this, which are mostly the responsibility of the ISP.
So you're saying none of the peering arrangements for ANY of the ISPs can support more than 4 mbps per customer from Netflix?
Did Google do such bad planning so soon for it's vaunted 1 Gbps connections? Does Google have so many poor performing user connections it dragged down their numbers below 5% of their most advertised tier? If so Google should REALLY fix that, but I don't think they can because the problem isn't them.
So how do all the other speed tests and sites commonly support more than a 4 mbps per customer average going through those peering points? Are my SamKnows tests done every few hours showing I get 30 mbps downloads wrong? Netflix puts my ISP at a little over 2 mpbs...--
If you need help, I'm here for you. If you're wrong, expect to be called out on it. If it's important, have a back up or two. Don't complain in public if you don't want an answer...
