Default SMOKSTAK sloooooooow loading

Anyone else experiencing the painfully sloooooooooooooooow loading of pages?
I can live stream video from other sites, but to make sure it was not something on my end.
I have restarted my computer. No change
I have rebooted my router. No change
Sometimes the page actually times out.

Respectfully
Keith

Empty out your temporary internet files. These become clogged with old thumbnails and photos.

CCleaner is a good utility - https://www.ccleaner.com/

Could be a corrupted cookie file. The site is very fast for me. Try a different browser?

Who is your internet service provider? I have COX, and seem to have determined that the problem is with them.
