We recently attended the Huntingdon Business Fair and were really pleased to see both the variety and strength of the business community inside Huntingdonshire and the surrounding area. Whilst we were there we were offering a free website performance audit to anyone who left us a business card which was well received. Some interesting results occurred from this. Generally speaking, connections to the internet are getting quicker, however, this doesn’t seem to have resulted in faster website/web services, just more and more being sent to users. However, there are things that developers (and clients) can relatively easily do to drastically improve their website performance, which we have been mentioning in our blog recently.
