A guide to network throttling methods

On 12th November 2019 at Akamai as part of LWP November: Lighthouse audits and network throttling

When testing site performance, network throttling lets us simulate how a page would load for a user on a slower connection. But not all network throttling tools are the same, and it impacts your metrics and what conclusions you can draw from them.

You’ll learn what the differences between browser-level, OS-level, and simulated throttling are, and what that means in practice.
