Why use Test my site
We all know that more and more users are online through mobile devices as compared to PC and Laptops.
We chat with friends, buy things online, work online, almost everything is online. 40 % of the online transactions are done on mobile and the fact is that most of the population connects to internet through 2G, 3GNetwork connections. So, every website owner should keep in mind about the user experience on slower internet connections. To retain customers, the website should be engaging. If the website is not loading properly or taking longer than 3-5 seconds to load, chances of user quitting the website increases. That’s why every website should be optimized for poor network connections like 2G.
