Netflix has released the January ISP speed test results for India. The leaderboard shows Jio Giga Fiber going up a spot higher with 3.63 Mbps data speeds. Jio launched its fiber broadband service in India last September.

According to Netflix's ISP speed test, Jio Fiber managed to beat 7 Star Digital but with a very close shave. 7 Star Digital ranked second with 3.62 Mbps speeds. The list continues with Spectra at 3.50 Mbps, Airtel at 3.48 and Vodafone-backed You Broadband at 3.41. The data speeds might appear surprising for some but this is because of how Netflix measures it.
