Hi,

I have developed 4 websites for a client that is located in Turkey. The site is hosted in Sydney, Australia.

The client has complained of very slow loading times in various countries oversea including US, UK, Turkey, and Russia.

There are 2 purposes of this question:

1) Can anyone not located in Australia please test to see if they are experiencing very slow loading times.

2) Can anyone point out anything that may contribute to slow loading times overseas.

The sites in question are:

http://www.omniarings.com

Singapore = Medium Slow for all sites ( flash takes bout 1-2 mins to load )
I think because it is using flash?

Dont know... just a thought...

It is a bit slow from Nashville, TN.  I'm at work where I average 30Mb/s to most sites and it took longer than I thought it should... most sights pop up like boom, and for those I had to wait even for the initial loading bar -- maybe 5-8 seconds.

Thanks for you help jason.

It's not the 5-8 seconds im worried about, the client seems to think that it takes 5 minutes sometimes...I cannot get that situation replicated.

I have to keep investigating

another idea is that maybe like jasonsbytes, do a tracert and find out where is the slowness?

Just a thought

Sites are loading slowly than required because of the Flash. Progress bar takes few moments to come up.

Reduce the size of the flash and you will notice some difference viewer loading time.

Otherwise its all good.
