Adding Geo-Location effects Performance on Mobile
This is fascinating. I ran two Mobile performance tests on Google.com. The first one was with location turned off, the second one allowed Google to access my location.
Check out the time gap (over a second and a half) and the extra bandwidth required (31,000 bytes of data). The rule of thumb is that each ½ a second is worth a billion a year in revenue to Google. That’s over 3 billion dollars you’re looking at. So how could they get that 1 ½ seconds back? Answer – 3PMobile’s Android Browser
