M.Sears.com came in second for iPhone testing with an average of 3.39 seconds, followed by OfficeDepot.com (3.76 seconds), LLBean.com (4.70) and Dell.com (5.01).
Gomez measures the average iPhone response time for three major wirelessservice carriers: AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. Testing for all 20 retailers takes place once per hour per carrier from two U.S. locations (Virginia and California).
Gomez measures response time as the end-to-end time elapsed while downloading each mobile site.
