    This work presents a new methodology to measure the performance of web browsing over operational Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks. We designed a web performance measurement tool that collects both the web QoS metrics and the web rendering time in a browser window. We used MONROE [1], European wide measurement platform, to deploy our tool and to conduct a web browsing measurement over operational MBB networks. The results from the initial deployment show that different operators across countries and within the same country have a significant difference in web browsing performance (e.g. in the median case TIM is 75 ms faster than I WIND regarding time to first byte (TTFB)).
