, the leading provider of fiber-based communication services and Content Delivery Network solutions, announced
that The Golf WareHouse, which is the world’s largest golf retailer, had selected Level 3’s Total Site Performance offering to speed its website TWG.com.
By leveraging the frontend optimization options provided by the Total Site Performance tool that improves the performance by optimizing content as per the requester’s browser. Apart from optimizing the content, the Total Site Performance tool also dynamically changes the pages and delivers them faster to the audience.
