Using compression significantly increases page transmission speed from a server to a client. A common compression ratio for text and HTML files is 50% to 70%, which seriously improves performance both on the server and client sides.
A preferred point of compression application is the front-end. Use it on the back-end server if only otherwise is impossible.
