    Following an analysis of the speed and quality of Moscow mobile operators ( TelecomDaily news of July 2, 2014 ), VIGO, together with the country's leading online cinemas, conducted an analysis of the quality of fixed Internet in Moscow.

    The methodology is based on data obtained using the technology platform directly from the largest Russian video services. VIGO specialists in real time “see” with what speed and quality subscribers of Moscow Internet providers are viewing online video.

    According to the results of 20.5 million measurements from August to October, taking place automatically with each video preview in the Moscow region (Moscow and the region), 2KOM subscribers have the best conditions in the field of speed of access to video content. The average speed of their video viewing is 13.6 Mbit / s. Users of this company are less likely than others to stop watching online video without waiting for it to download.
    The worst average speed indicators are for the MGTS provider, whose subscribers watch online video at an average speed of 7.8 Mbit / s and more often than others interrupt the video.

    Moscow. Rating of fixed operators by average speed and VDI

    VIGO introduces the concept of Video Delivery Indicator for the first time. The advantage of VDI is its ability to take into account both the traditional technological parameter - average speed and user-defined quality characteristics of video views - the share of views interrupted by subscribers themselves at the time of buffering (video drops).

    VDI (Video Delivery Indicator) is equal to the ratio of the average speed to the average share of video drops. Video drops characterizes the extreme degree of customer dissatisfaction with the quality of video viewing.

    According to the results of 20.5 million measurements taken from August to October of this year in Moscow, the best conditions in the field of quality of online video delivery in ChNN are for subscribers of 2KOM, Smile, Iskratelecom, Gorkom, Vimpelcom and Megafon. Their subscribers have the highest maximum average speed *, they are less likely than others to stop watching online video without waiting for it to download, and they are least expected to watch it.
