This may have been discussed before but where are Netflix servers located? Are there dedicated servers for each country..ie Canada. Asking the question because of some problems with the app on a Sharp television and lack of quality. Did some juggling with the settings on the Tv and the quality improved. Using a powerline extender with Ethernet connection and Bell internet (50) with speed around 36 mbps (+-)

From what I've heard, they use Amazon services which are globally located. You will always be directed to the closest available services. If you use a VPN or other location masking techniques, you might be served from a server further away.
Definitely focus on your home network and make sure your router has sufficient capacity for the number of devices in your home.
Bandwidth requirements for Netflix are listed here. For HD video, a 5 Megabit per second internet connection or better is required, so your 36 mbps connection is more than sufficient to get a good picture.
I agree with ExDilbert and whitbyterry, that the problem is likely not Netflix servers being too far away. Netflix has a very robust delivery network.
