Speed Tests and Actual UX Mismatching - cybersprout - 12-04-2017 03:08 PM

I've run numerous tests on alexmncalendar.com and the results are looking respectable:

However, most of the uncached pages that I navigate to on the site take approximately 5-10 seconds to load (timing it on my phone). Numerous others have reported a similar experience.

Thank you for any insights or suggestions in advance!

There are advanced settings you can change before you start your test where you can choose a phone and/or limited bandwidth scenario. Also try different regions - it could be that the default location (Dulles) is close to your servers, while on your phone you're further away.

But I agree with your original statement - 2.4s is not too bad. If you want more performance suggestions, run your page through Google Pagespeed Insights.
