Ecommerce page load times are becoming slower

A new report from Radware suggests that despite the effort that businesses put into ensuring a fast load time, average site speeds are actually getting slower.

The study shows that in spring 2012 the median page took 6.79 seconds to load, but this has now dropped to 7.72 seconds, a slowdown of 13.7%.

Among the top 500 leading retail websites, as ranked by Alexa.com, Ikea was found to have the fastest full load time at just 1.85 seconds followed by AbeBooks (2.06 seconds) and Pixmania (2.20 seconds).
