A study published by Google shows that web pages have the fastest loading times on mobile devices in Romania and Germany, both with an average speed of 8.1 seconds. However, this loading time is much slower than the timeframe recommended by Google, of just 3 seconds.

According to the research, page loading speed is a critical aspect for online smartphone access. Almost half (46 percent) of participants in Google’s study said that the most frustrating aspect of going online on their smartphones is having to wait too long for pages to load. Furthermore, over half (53 percent) of mobile visits risk to be abandoned if the page takes more than three seconds to load.

Data gathered by Google shows that Romania and Germany have the best performance among European countries in terms of how long it takes for pages to load on mobile devices, with an 8.1 second average, while the average speed in Poland, Italy or Sweden exceeds 9 seconds.

The fastest websites in Romania were those in technology and retail, with average loading speeds between 7.9 and 8.3 seconds, while education and public institutions had the slowest websites.
