QVC’s mobile commerce site, m.QVC.com, gave shoppers the fastest iPhone access time among large web retailers in October, says Gomez, the web performance division of Compuware Corp. Last month, m.QVC.com produced an average iPhone mobile response time of 1.80 seconds.

The next best iPhone response time was from m.Newegg.com with 2.60 seconds, followed by m.Walmart.com (3.56 seconds), Williams-Sonoma.com (3.78) and Amazon.com (4.32).

QVC’s mobile site also posted the fastest mobile response times for three other common devices in Gomez testing: Sprint’s HTC Hero (1.68 seconds), T-Mobile’s HTC Dream (4.04 seconds) and Verizon’s Droid (1.65 seconds). M.Newegg.com posted the second best mobile response time for each device in October.

Gomez measured response time as the end-to-end time elapsed while downloading each mobile site.
