Non-Chinese Websites load an average of 5-8x slower in China. This is the combined result of a site's hosting infrastructure, code-level compatibility with China's internet (e.g. blocked resources), the optimisation, or lack thereof, of its resources, and China networks. Even if a company acquires an ICP license
(an onshore business entity is required to host a site in China), their site may still require resource modifications within their site to perform optimally in China. This test is designed to highlight key performance opportunities and gaps across load time, visual loading experience and more.
