A theme at Velocity Amsterdam is how the next billion users will come from regions where 2G and 3G mobile connections dominate. It’s important to test performance for these users, but that’s been a challenge for developers in network-rich regions. Simulating those network conditions doesn’t reflect actual mobile network performance. Thanks to a collaboration between Headspin.io and WebPageTest, it’s now possible to test your website from emerging markets like India, Brazil, Indonesia and HongKong over local mobile networks.
