Chapter 20. Server Performance > Keep Content as Small as Possible

20.4. Keep Content as Small as Possible

The network doesn't know or care what type of content you are serving. Bits are bits. Size is all that really matters for network transfer time. Keeping file size down also means that your server can handle more requests. The following table shows the theoretical limits for the number of HTTP requests your server can process based on network connection and average file size. In the real world, the numbers will be considerably less, depending on a number of factors.
