bplaced losing speed?

Is it me or is bplaced getting slower lately, my site now takes 7 seconds to load, normally it does it in under 1


this seriously depends on datetime, the server your site is hosted on and/or peak loads, which usually do not take that long. i would not guess that the ‘entire bplaced’ cluster became slower, there are about half of the servers running at almost perfect response time, 2 servers within the last 3 days had more or less serious performance issues …next week might be vice versa - it’s hard to tell, since this is free shared webhosting, there is no fixed amount of customers, load balancing or whatever. I’d suggest to wait a few minutes and try again to count the seconds until your page is finished.
