Curious about how well your phone is performing in terms of web access? Spend an hour with our STEM speaker, Dr. Aruna Balasubramanian from the Department of Computer Science to learn about “Is the Mobile Web Experience Improving?”
- Date/Time: Wednesday, March 2, 2022 from 1pm-2pm
- Location: Online
There is no question that mobile browsers are critical to how users access Internet content today. The question is, is mobile Web performance improving? If so, is the improvement equitable? Our study found that lower-end phones that are popular in emerging countries see considerably worse Web performance compared to its higher end counterpart. In effect, users who do not wish (or cannot afford) to constantly upgrade their devices are experiencing a slower web. Among the higher-end phones, the overall performance appears to be improving in terms of traditional Web metrics. However, these metrics do not take into account user experience. I will discuss the work in our lab to address both of these issues.
