The Mobile Web: The Next Frontier

Keynotes Ballroom ABCD

Mobile web users are demanding. More than half say that they expect sites to download as quickly on their mobile devices as they do on their home computers. Three out of 5 say that poor performance will make them less likely to return to the site. And 40% say they’d likely visit a competitor’s site next.

Despite the technical constraints of delivering speedy mobile websites, some companies are emerging as leaders. Joshua will talk about where the mobile performance bar is:

- which companies and industries are leading the pack;
- what performance benchmarks have been established now;
- where these benchmarks are likely to go; and
- what this means for site owners.
