Recent research by DoubleClick shows that 53% of mobile sites are abandoned if they take longer than 3 seconds to load, and that the average load time on 3G is 19 seconds. Worse, a report by TwinPrime shows that mobile networks aren't always improving – in the U.S., LTE speeds actually decreased 50% in the past year.
