nPerf Speed Test / Press release / July 24, 2023

Barometer of fixed Internet connections  

The Netherlands

H2 2022 – H1 2023 

Delta Fiber provided the best broadband Internet performances in the Netherlands during the last two semesters.

This study is based on tests carried out by users of the website in the Netherlands and other websites that collaborate with nPerf and have installed our free speed test.

Between July 1st, 2022 and June 30th, 2023 we counted in the Netherlands 424.337 tests.

The overall distribution of the tests per provider is as follows:

The nPerf study is based on thousands of tests carried out exclusively by the operators’ end customers, which makes it the “crowdsourced” study based on one of the largest panels of the country. These tests reflect the actual experience of the general public in the Netherlands on the various Internet networks.

Delta Fiber enters our barometer in the best possible way as they take the lead of the Dutch broadband Internet industry. The company reaches the top place thanks to its very high performances on the three KPIs (download and upload speeds and latency). 

The highest speed is the best.
Download speed: indicates the amount of data your connection can receive in one second from the nPerf server. Surfing the Internet, listening to music or downloading large files require a good download speed. Download speed is measured in megabits per second (Mb/s).
The latency indicates the delay a small packet of data needs to make a round-trip from your device to a server. It describes how responsive your connection is: the time between sending information and receiving it. The shorter the delay, the most reactive is your connection. Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms). 

T-Mobile ends at the second place, despite its continuous improvement on download and upload speeds. 

KPN also improved the upload and download speed, but it is not enough and the firm remains behind T-Mobile but is reducing the gap.

Ziggo ends up in the last position of our ranking, due to a very low upload speed (34 Mb/s). Ziggo is the only operator to keep a flat upload speed since the 2 years.

Upload speed: refers to how fast you can send information from your device to the nPerf server. Sending emails, video calling and uploading photos and videos to social media require good upload speed. It is measured in megabits per second (Mb/s).

To sum up, these national figures are pretty good, and their trends encouraging. Nothing has to be taken for granted, as T-Mobile and KPN are close behind the leader and won’t give up that easily.  – nPerf Facebook Linkedin Twitter
