Internet speed and the effects on web design
Most businesses and individuals looking to create a website are keen to make their sites as snazzy and eye-catching as possible in order to make them stand out. However, it is important to remember that the design of your site can have a big impact on how quickly the site loads, which in turn can have a profound effect on how well received it is by your target audience.
While broadband has come a long way over the past few years, with technology such as fibre broadband from Virgin Media offering superfast speeds, you need to bear in mind that not everyone has access to high-speed services. This is something you need to take into consideration when designing your website, otherwise you could end up with a site that only loads in a reasonable amount of time for a small percentage of your target audience.
Avoid making your website a nightmare for those with slower speeds
