When I open a question at
stackoverflow.com it comes at a normal time (instantly or 1 second), but if I refresh the page by F5 I wait for about 5 seconds, sometimes more.
The browser status says:
waiting for cdn.sstatic.net
Is there something wrong with the
Content Delivery Network from sstatic.net?
I seems this is nothing with to do in a far location. From comments, users states the same issue from their location:
- Oded: London England.
- adarshr: England
- mistaecko: SEA
- cdeszaq: Madison, WI
- Daniel Beck: Germany
Maybe europe users are redirected to specific cdn server then the server have congestion result: as seen in picture aboce 1KB downladed ~ in 1 second.
This speed is equal either 56K modem times or distance for a user at Mars.
As seen also aboce picture content from cdn.sstatic:
served at the same time.
