Speed Test – Week 130 Summary Table
The fastest host this week is SiteGround with a time of 2.02s, which breaks the all time São Paulo record of 2.02s (by the barest of margins: 2.018s vs 2.022s), which was set by InMotion Hosting in Week 124.
On our last visit to São Paulo (with Cache Enabler setup in Week 127), the average load time for our 8 hosts was 2.33s. This week with Comet Cache now on board, the average load time was ever so slightly slower at 2.37s.
This is the second week of the Comet Cache Speed Study, and it continues to be a very close battle, with Cache Enabler slightly in front of Comet Cache.
Next week I’ll be switching up our test location to Mumbai. I am very keen to find out which caching solution 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.
