Speed Test – Week 106 Summary Table
The fastest host this week is Bluehost with a time of 1.58s, which is a fair way off the all time London record of 0.87s, which was set by HostGator in Week 64.
On our last visit to London (with Simple Cache on board in Week 103), the average load time for our 8 hosts was 1.77s. This week with Cache Enabler, the average load time is exactly the same at 1.77s.
This is the second week of the Cache Enabler Speed Study and luckily we have 1 more week of testing, as so far, there is no way of separating Simple Cache & Cache Enabler.
Next week we’ll switch up our testing location to Sydney, I wonder which caching plugin will prove to be the fastest?
And this Week’s Winner is…
After 2 years of testing, let’s summarize all the results to see how our 8 hosts are performing overall. It will also allow us to find out which host is currently leading our speed challenge.
