Mobile web access getting faster, mainstream websites getting fatter


Google has published analytics data showing that mobile web access is 30% faster than a year ago, while websites designed for access on fixed net connections have gained little in speed – a fact explained by the fact that page sizes are now 56% larger, giving an effective speed boost of around 60%.

Over the last year, we have seen significant improvements in the core infrastructure that powers the Internet: the web browsers have gotten faster; there have been quite a few LTE/4G deployments making mobile networks a lot faster; and processing power on mobile devices continues to increase at a rapid pace.
