After doing some world wide speed testing of the site we found the bottleneck lowering our speeds and loading times. Google Fonts. For some reasons it wont load in some countries and it is slower in all others, it is the largest request, for the time it takes a 24KB font file from Google to load it takes us the same time to load 6 versions of a 80KB icon font from our servers. So we are hosting the OpenSans font ourself and ditched using the Google font service. Now people in any country can use the site without waiting for it to first load.
Google font's, why are you so bad?
