How do you design for 2G connection?

over 6 years ago from , Design Lead @ OYORooms.com

I am from India, and 3G adoption is still very low in my country (hardly 5%-10%). I am designing the mobile website of OYORooms.com and mainly the problem is for the search results page where there are lots of images. People in my company are suggesting that we do away with images on search results page but I'm afraid the page will look completely dull without any property images. Has anyone faced similar challenge? Any thoughts around this? Have any of you designed specifically with 2G connection in mind?
