I mean 30 to 60 seconds per page slow.
I remember them being slow when I last used them 6 months ago it seems nothing has changed.
Same for me. I think they moved their servers out of AU, which is why it was slow for me previously, but if that's the case it didn't help much. If they are still hosted in AU, well then blame the shitty submarine links.
Network speed usually doesn't affect web server speediness as much as coding quality
Sure, but it seems uncannily common that AU sites are slow for me. Even Ozcoin was 300-400+ ms latency and really slow loading when it was in AU, but now it's a bit better. I think it's in Texas now, unless that has changed since I last looked.
As far as I know, there is only one submarine cable that goes direct from LA to Sydney, all the rest route through Japan and NZ and some random islands down there.
