Statistics: The Average Size of a Web Page is Now 1.3 MB, Up 35% in Last Year
From the Canadian Press:
The average size of a web page continues to grow unabated, a trend that mobile users in particular should take note of.
According to the website HTTP Archive, which regularly studies the top 10,000 most-visited sites online, the average web page now weighs in at about 1.3 megabytes, up about 35 per cent in the last year.
HTTP Archive suggests the average web page when browsing on a mobile device – accounting for the fact that some websites have mobile-optimized pages and others don’t – is about 720 kilobytes.
