Speed Test – Week 143 Summary Table

For the 3rd week in a row, the fastest host is Kinsta with a time of 2.03s.

It’s early days with our 4 new premium hosts, but it is interesting to see Kinsta pull away from the pack in Mumbai. The other fascinating observation is that Flywheel is our first premium host to be outpointed by our best budget hosts of Lightning Base & SiteGround.

For next week’s test, I will change up our testing location to Vancouver. I wonder whether Kinsta will continue to dominate in Canadian waters?
