UK mobile broadband measurements

Sponsored by Bytemobile

An extensive measurement campaign was carried out between June and August 2009 to assess the effect of mobile broadband optimisation on Internet access through notebook/netbook computers. Measurements were performed in and around London on all UK mobile networks offering mobile broadband products and conducted so that the results were comparable, regardless of the surrounding environment and traffic in the measured cell.

Measurement results for operators that optimise showed smaller webpage size compared with those that did not. It was concluded that file size is the dominant parameter affecting webpage download duration and that efficient optimisation dramatically improves user experience with no perceived loss of quality. With optimisation, webpage size was reduced by up to 52% compared with non-optimised fixed broadband, savings that can significantly impact radio capacity
