Salt Lake City —Utah internet provider XMission has announced three strategic peering agreements with content providers, including Netflix, Facebook, and Google, designed to give customers faster access to some of the most popular sites on the Internet.
Customers on XMission's network with Internet connections exceeding 5Mbps and a Netflix subscription can now stream Netflix Super HD movies using approved Super HD devices. According to Netflix, Super HD delivers 1080p, the best picture quality available.
Approved Super HD devices include Sony PS3, Nintendo Wii U, Windows 8 App, Roku with 1080p, Apple TV with 1080p, TiVo Premiere DVR, and select smart TVs and Blu-Ray players.
XMission established these peering agreements by participating in the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX), a major interconnection for communications companies and Internet providers, using a 10 Gigabit connection. Once on SIX, XMission joined Netflix's Open Connect content delivery network, which allows XMission to provide high-speed customers with Super HD.
