Google has introduced new tool to check and improve website speed and it also shows where your website stands among your competitor. You can check out the tool here TestMySite.
You have noticed that TestMySite, the tool of Google, shows load time better than Pingstool and Gtmatrix.
TestmySite checks the speed of the website with a regular 3G connection which is the most used internet speed all over the world. TestmySite checks uses a Moto G4 device within a 3G network. It means your site is not not being checked with a connection with higher speed as it is the case with Pingdom.
Don’t believe it?
If you have a 3G connection, check your site with it and keep a stop watch. When you open the URL in the browser, run the watch, and once it is loaded fully, stop it. You will be amazed.
Users also use 3G or 4G, not 1Gbps. Till 2020, people will have 3G like speed. That’s was the main reason to develop such a tool.
