Impact of image content on your mobile site speed

Images can be mega bytes in size or small low quality images that portray the message and are of sufficient quality. A large megabyte image is going to take longer to transmit and receive on the customers mobile phone. It takes longer for the server to deliver it to the communications link, longer for the link to transmit it and longer for the smart phone to receive and process it. A smaller less dense image can be delivered much more quickly and be of sufficient quality for the user.
