Slow web page loading
I was recently upgraded from 24 Mbps to 75 Mbps service. As part of the upgrade, they installed a new modem. I am getting good results from Speedtest, close to the 75 Mbps I’m expecting. The latency is under 25 ms. I get good results from both hard-wired and WiFi devices.
However, there is a serious lag in loading web pages. The lag can be from 5 to 20 seconds. The same problem occurs over a wide range of domains, so I cannot attribute it to any one site.
I found that tracert is getting frequent timeouts within the AT&T network. I have run tracert from my Windows PC and also from the modem with the same results. It appears that some servers in the AT&T network are simply not responding at all. Eventually the system finds a working route, but the timeouts on some servers seem to be causing these delays.
What can be done about this situation?
