Save Internet Bandwidth for your users!
Web developers and technology leaders love to build new features and products on their websites, which makes perfect sense, however a critical component that may be hidden under the rug is that they forget internet bandwidth costs their end users need to pay. There needs to be more discipline in analysing which countries your users are accessing your website from and how much is their bandwidth costs in terms of dollars and actual bandwidth. Websites are getting larger and larger in terms of size each day with more content being added. Especially companies that are looking to expand into developing countries, you need to consider the amount of data that your users will need to download. Based off the latest October 1, 2019 run of HTTP Archive, the median site size is 1950kb on desktop and 1752kb on Mobile.
