PacketZoom, the leader in mobile app acceleration, just launched “PacketZoom Global Mobile App Network Benchmarks.”
“This is the first global standard for mobile app developers and publishers to gauge mobile app performance across geographies and networks,” the company tells MAW. “PacketZoom will publish monthly benchmarks analyzing global data for mobile app performance across 2G, 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi networks.”
PacketZoom measured the performance of mobile apps on live cellular and Wi-Fi networks throughout October, 2016 to determine countries and networks that performed the best.
“One of the greatest challenges for mobile app development has been a lack of standard metrics to measure the end user experience,” explained Shlomi Gian, PacketZoom CEO. “We created global benchmarks so that developers have a performance standard to relate to when deploying applications globally.”
So, what countries are in the forefront when it comes to adoption of advanced cellular technology? According to the report, the leader is Canada (96 percent), followed by South Korea (95 percent), Japan (93 percent), Indonesia (91 percent), and the U.S. (83 percent).
The best response times for mobile apps are enjoyed by users in France, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, and Germany.
On the other hand, some users live in countries known for packet loss on mobile apps over cellular and WiFi networks — specifically China (30.2 percent), South Korea (6.1 percent), the UK (5.1 percent), Japan (4.6 percent), and Taiwan (4.0 percent).
