Baidu is planning to improve users' wireless search
experience by traffic compression of web pages. This
is estimated to save 90% of traffic bandwidth for users
who use Baidu's wireless search function to get to a
site, when compared to accessing the site directly.
According to a technician from Baidu, the current sizes of
web pages are usually about 70 kilobytes to 80 kilobytes
and those of front pages may reach over 200 kilobytes.
However, with the transcoder technology of Baidu, the
sizes of these pages will be at about five kilobytes.
