Site speed reflects how quickly a website responds to web requests. Speeding up websites is important — not just to site owners, but to all Internet users. Faster sites create happy users and we've seen in our internal studies that when a site responds slowly, visitors spend less time there.
With that being said, we are now in the year 2020. No we don't have flying cars and androids walking around as we imagined, however the standard household now has high speed unlimited internet with an average of 100-200Mbps download and 50-100Mbps Upload. Why is this important? Because this is what affects your website speed and load time the most.
The average website designer prefers not use "fancy" or hi-def images as they tend to be a bit larger in file size, hence "will take longer to load". In hind-sight, most web developers are not also graphic designers, and if they need to get "fancy" or hi-def images, then they need to either hire a graphic designer, photographer or subscribe to an online stock photo database. The same goes for enhancing text or using transitions, or additional flash media. It will cost more or takes more time. They prefer to use templates and are not artistically inclined to give that extra oomph your website needs.
The bottom line is the speeds provided by ISPs in this modern era of technology are mind blowing and therefore now omits the myths of "a heavy website".
