RE: Test Result Versus Real World Experience
Thanks, this makes sense and I will look into those things. Jim

Are you close to the Dulles WPT location you tested from?
Choose a WPT location closest to your target market to get the most accurate load time experienced by your users, as latency can increase significantly the further the end user is from the server.

Internet Speed
Do you have a faster internet connection?
The WPT default connection speed models a cable 5/1Mbps connection. Increasing this will give you a faster time closer to 3/4s.

CPU power
Testing from a real world desktop will usually render the javascript/css faster than WPT due to having a more powerful CPU.

Other notes:
Be sure to increase the 'Number of Tests to Run' in the advanced settings to run a few tests in case your initial test is an outlier.

As far as improving the current load time you really need to address the 301 redirects (the yellow highlighted rows on the test result). Nearly all the website's resources have a redirect from to your main domain. Ensure they are served correctly from the CDN or remove the CDN.
