In this paper we present results from a measurement campaign evaluating the web performance of different mobile Internet access technologies with and without caching. We measured in GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and HSDPA radio access networks of a mobile operator in Austria. The operator has implemented a web-proxy for performance improvement. To evaluate the impact on the different technologies we ran the setup with and without the web-proxy. We defined the download time of web pages as the performance index for our work. We developed a tool to capture this parameter and derived the index for a set of web sites frequently used by the customers in the network. Beginning with an overall comparison we will present detailed analysis for special cases. We evaluated the impact of the proxy system to different site configurations using the performance index. Finally we compared the performance numbers for HTTP with results collected from FTP transfers.
