Today Netflix updated its ISP-shaming speed index, revealing that average streaming speeds for Verizon FiOS customers rose 31.5 percent last month to 3.17 Mbps during peak hours, up from 2.41 Mbps in August.

This improvement isn’t celebration-worthy when you consider that the average Internet speed in the U.S. was 10 Mbps in April. Worse, U.S. Internet speeds rank a dismal 10th place overall. But, as Netflix notes, this is the first major speed improvement since the streaming movie company announced that it pays Verizon to boost streaming speeds for customers.
