Pergo theme & speed

WordPress Mobile Speed

You wondered if swapping Pergo theme for something faster might be a good idea. Pergo is loading in 328 milliseconds (plus another 12 milliseconds for addon modules). The WP Bakery pagebuilder adds an extra 39 milliseconds. All this is theme overhead. The total is 379 milliseconds on PHPv5.6. That will
speed up on 7.3 and most likely save around 200 milliseconds.
So how fast is an alternative theme. Fast stripped themes like
GeneratePress, Twenty-Seventeen default, and Astra load in under 50 milliseconds on PHP 5.6. That gives you a comparative idea.
