MyBroadband has launched its new website design, which offers you faster loading times, a cleaner interface, and a more secure experience.
Over the last year, MyBroadband has grown its South African audience to 1.7 million unique browsers per month.
This growing audience gave us an opportunity to better track what our readers want and why they come back to MyBroadband every day.
MyBroadband’s home page, which receives 1 million visits per month, was the obvious place to start.
Our readers’ behaviour clearly showed that they come to MyBroadband for South African tech news and discussions about the latest developments.
We therefore gave the latest news more prominence and improved the navigation to make it easier to go to different tech sections.
The top article picks are now placed at the top of the page and the rest of the articles are displayed in chronological order.
We also cut down on the number of ads per page and significantly improved page loading times to give users a better experience.
We have also implemented HTTPS across the website, which provides improved security and privacy for visitors.
A big focus with the new design was mobile. The website is fully responsive and now provides a truly great experience on smartphones and tablets.
This means the new MyBroadband website not only provides a better experience for users, but gives advertisers more prominence on the site.
MyBroadband aims to give our readers, members, clients, and partners the best experience possible, and we know our new site will continue to help us do that.
We are really proud of the site and are confident it is going to offer you a great experience, regardless of which device you use and which section you visit.
Below is a summary of the standout features of the new design:
- Faster page loading times, which improve the user experience.
- Cleaner look with less clutter, letting you navigate the site with ease.
- Strong focus on mobile, which means the site looks great on smartphones and tablets.
- HTTPS implemented across the news site and the forum, ensuring your connection to MyBroadband is encrypted and secure.
- Fewer, more prominent advertisements, benefiting both readers and advertisers.
A special thank you must go out to our lead developer Marius for the great new look and feel of the site. Many hours were put into this project, and it has come out beautifully.
