SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PacketZoom, the leader in mobile app acceleration, today launched the PacketZoom Global Mobile App Network Benchmarks. This is the first global standard for mobile app developers and publishers to gauge mobile app performance across geographies and networks. PacketZoom will publish monthly benchmarks analyzing global data for mobile app performance across 2G, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi networks.
"One of the greatest challenges for mobile app development has been a lack of standard metrics to measure the end user experience," says Shlomi Gian, CEO of PacketZoom. "We created global benchmarks so that developers have a performance standard to relate to when deploying applications globally."
PacketZoom measured the performance of mobile apps on live cellular and Wi-Fi networks throughout October 2016 to determine countries and networks that performed the best. See our inaugural results below:

The PacketZoom Mobile Observatory and Benchmarks is based on millions of data points gathered from usage of mobile apps around the world. Benchmarks are based on actual performance data of mobile apps as experienced by real users in each country over the month of October 2016. It is the first time performance insights have been presented at the user-experience level instead of merely showing carrier signal strength.
20 countries included in the Observatory have been selected based on their size, amount of mobile traffic, and representation of a particular region of the world. They are subject to change.
