Office Depot’s mobile site produced the fastest iPhone access time across three major service providers among large web retailers in January, says Compuware Gomez. Last month, OfficeDepot.com produced an average iPhone mobile response time of 4.52 seconds.

BarnesandNoble.com came in second with 5.86 seconds, followed by Williams-Sonoma.com (5.93 seconds), Blockbuster.com (6.46) and Buy.com (6.49).

Gomez measures the average iPhone response time for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. Testing for the 15 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.\
