User Experience: How Much Does your Mobile Web Site Weigh?

– 17.84 mbps = 1.784 mbps

How would you calculate the weight of your mobile web site? How long will it take to download?

How fast is your mobile connection? Download the OOKLA Speed Test app on to your phone, and test your phone atoth 3G and WIFI connections. Compare the Results?

How would you calculate the weight of your mobile web site? How long will it take to download?

Using the tutorial web site you created, calculate its weight.

1. Assume a 3G average connection of 2Mb/s download speed, with a 500ms latency, how long will it take to view your page(s)? Calculate this figure for each page

– .500s x 3 images ( the actual size of the image

– .500s x 3 JQeury

– .500s x 1 HTML

adding all of the above then divide them by 10 to get the total

2. Is this similar to what you experience connecting to your computer when you test your site using Apache?

3. How can you reduce the weight of your site?

4. For each page, work to reduce the weight and calculate the differences between your current site and the reduced site. Report these figures

3. How can you reduce the weight of your site?

Explain in detail why and how you did what you did in the above steps. What problems did you have, and how did you overcome them?
