Many of us have BT Infinity at home or one of the other “fibre to the cabinet” offerings. It’s only recently that I have been able switch at home from basic ADSL to fiber. It’s not been without its problems, but thats another story.
Since the upgrade I’m finding that the variance in responsiveness of both my sites and generally those that I use on the internet has increased massively. That is to say, some sites have not sped up in proportion to my own increased connectivity as much as others.
I might be a little ahead of the curve as a user (an early adopter), but what us techies are doing now, everyone else will be doing later. I have a fast laptop with a Solid State Hard Disk. Some websites almost respond as if they were software applications: this is what I want to see from all of my websites. I know how the big players like the BBC achieve this – the question is:
How can one individual responsible for a dozen sites achieve the same on a very small fraction of the budget and in only a short amount of time? And, that means I can’t spend hours reprogramming of of my sites!
So, I’ve been on a mission to research this and in this blog you will find an account account of my journey and what I have found.
