Using a high broadband connection, Dell also provided the fastest site response time: 2.79 seconds. Web shoppers typically use a high broadband connection to log onto the Internet from a corporate environment, usually their place of employment. At home most web shoppers use a low broadband connection.

In June a shopper with a high broadband connection could access a Top 50 retail site in 5.72 seconds, compared with 14.63 seconds for a low broadband connection and 56.95 seconds for dial-up.
