Earlier this year 51Degrees gave people the opportunity to nominate frustrating, slow-loading and heavy mobile websites for a chance to win $1000. Our Search for the Heaviest Mobile Website competition has now closed and all website entries have had their final mobile ‘weigh-in’.
Congratulations to Paul Dart, who nominated www.cityvoter.com as the heaviest mobile website. Cityvoter.com weighed in at just over 26mb, which is equivalent to transferring around 8 average MP3 song files. Loading just the cityvoter.com homepage would cost over £1 on Vodafone’s pay-as-you-go internet tariff.
