Why should I disable Jetpack modules?
When you need better speed, it is best to disable unnecessary Jetpack modules. I use Google analytics for the stats, so I don’t need site stats module which will have the load on my every page load. So I have disabled it. If you use contact form plugins like WPforms, you don’t have to use Jetpack contact form module so you can disable that. Like wise, you need to disable unnecessary features.
