The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the response packet distribution of three mobile portal sites in Korea. The research subjects are Naver, Daum, and Nate’s mobile portal site. The experiment period is six years from April 18, 2012 to April 17, 2018, when mobile portals are activated. And number of experiments is 4,060 times. Daum showed a distribution having two peaks because of a large amount of response packet, Naver had a long distribution with right tail, and Nate had a medium distribution. This is the opposite of the packet distribution of the wired portal of Ryu in 2013. We conducted the identity test of the distributions through the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to find out that the distribution of the three mobile portals is not the same at the significance level of 1%. However, in the average packet comparison, Naver and Nate were the same, and only Daum showed a high level. Also, as a result of the paper, it can be seen that Naver and Daum ’s strategy against mobile portal is contradictory. In order to increase the response speed of mobile portals, it is necessary to make the page light along with increasing the network speed. This paper hopes to contribute to the technical competitiveness to make mobile portal pages light.
