LLBean.com and JCPenney.com produced the best high broadband access times among 22 large web retailers tested in March, according to Compuware Gomez. Last month, LLBean.com posted the fastest response time in Firefox tests with an average load time of 0.94 seconds. JCPenney.com finished atop Internet Explorer testing, also with an average of 0.94 seconds.

Dell.com had the second-best time in Firefox tests at 0.97 seconds, followed by Overstock.com (1.10), Apple.com (1.12) and Macys.com (1.15).

In last month’s Internet Explorer response time tests, Macys.com placed second with an average of 1.09 seconds. Apple.com (1.13) was next, followed by Costco.com (1.32) and Dell.com (1.37).

In March, the average large retailer’s high broadband response time for a shopper using Firefox was 1.88 seconds, the Gomez study shows. The average Internet Explorer response time among the same group of retailers last month was 1.97 seconds.
