If it’s a large & complex app - it might make sense to split some parts of its
code into separate logical services.
And yeah, a smaller app probably would load a lot faster than a complex one so
I don’t think that would have anything to do with bandwidth costs but would
definitely help with reducing the latency on launching new instances.
Also, you might want to look into microservices (
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microservices> ) where the approach is to split
the app into as many small micro app as possible in order to make the
development of the app easier...
