Those speeds are about what it would take on 56 modem, the tool you are using is probably estimating times based on a user with a 56K modem. Every users speed will vary but it will certainly be much faster on a cable connection, pretty much a blink of an eye for 17 kilobytes.

Hi Coalman, thanks for reply...
This is on a T1 connection! And this is on the dedicated server itself ... the server has a P4 Intel CPU..
I'm trying to find out more information as to why this is so slow.. any ideas?

Definitely looks like a server issue. 15k is not a big total for all your images, in fact it's bloomin low, so well done there.
Contact your hosts with the breakdown and see what their response is...

Thanks Limbo - will do. The irony is they gave me those figures!

Excellent - their response is "seems to be loading fine here". I'm not going to misbehave and mention their name here but they used to host webmasterworld! Pity I didn't know this earlier..
Looking into the traceroute - my audience is all UK based.. add another 2.5 seconds roughly for each page load due to all the routing within the states.. ouch!

There's a warning shot if ever I heard one. wishy-washy answers like that are a sure fire way to lose customers.

Limbo - can I ask what you would suggest I ask them and get from them?
