Mobile performance and carrier networks


I always look forward to the December return of the all the lovely advent blogs that are full of web goodness. Sites like 24ways, PHPAdvent and the Performance Calendar mean that I’ll have something to look forward to reading each day. So I was very excited when Stoyan asked if I would like to write another post for the Performance Calendar this year.

This year’s post is an overview of how inconsistent mobile networks are, as well as a plea for more communication between carriers, manufacturers and developers. If you’re interested in mobile performance, please give it a read.

Be sure to check out the rest of the articles there as well. As usual, there’s lots of good content already posted with more sure to come. In particular, I recommend Stoyan’s post on asynchronous snippets, Guy’s look at when you should and shouldn’t inline resources, and a post on localStorage performance by Nicholas.
