No idea. I haven't looked into it.

Some of my by buds have given up and are considering other options like moving their content elsewhere. I would can your current ISP and move the service if this were my site. The site performance has been getting worse all year on our end and it has become almost impossible to get anything done. I am a retired IT professional but I won't go off on this board because I like SP too much. I was on the receiving end of messages like this for almost 20 years so I know what it's like to get complaints. Please look into this because some people will just go away and never return when their frustration level reaches a certain point. The preview of this message just took 4 minutes to ccomplete...
Interesting. I've experienced no slowness with regards to navigating pages, posting to the forums, etc., since before the changes nearly two weeks ago. I have read one other post (not sure if it was also from you) about slowness during photo uploads, but that isn't necessarily indicative of any problem with the site because there are many reasons for photo uploads to take a long time.
It would help immensely with speed of upload if photos were resized before uploading them. Uploading a photo right off the camera is waste of disk space and time. Most photos off of even a middle range camera are 3-4mb. Even on a high speed internet connection, that's going to take some time to upload.
With regards to it taking 4 minutes to preview your post, as mentioned before, I haven't experienced anything like that since before the changes a couple weeks ago. And there haven't been many people posting that they're still experiencing slowness either (I only remember one person mentioning it when uploading photos and another when logging in), while a few are saying that they've noticed a significant improvement. Perhaps your 4 minute wait to preview had something to do with your connection and not the server. Not all delays on the internet are caused by the destination server.
