Typical issues with webpage load times are:

- Too much data transferred (payload)
A web page renders properly only after all its associated data has been downloaded. When bandwidth is limited, download times suffer and page performance decreases.

Successful web applications attract repeat users who visit favorite webpages or navigate consistently through a series of webpages. However, most websites do not take advantage of this behavior.
