What's Up with combo.staticflicker.com?

Orbmiser says:

Reload a Page click on image to go to Photo and seeing the combo.staticflicker.com sit there for 3-5 seconds. Real clunky and additional waiting for pages to load. This started last month with more incidents last couple of weeks.

Anybody else seeing this part of Flickr slowing down their page loads?

Yes, I noticed that too.
Waiting for combo.staticflickr.com actually takes 3 - 5 seconds, sometimes up to 10 seconds.

combo.staticflickr.com

The problem has been mentioned a few weeks ago, here:
www.flickr.com/help/forum/72157716615114283/

But I'm using my ISP's DNS, not Google DNS.
My ISP is Vodafone, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vodafone

It sounds like the slowness you're running into is related to your specific network connection. If you continue to run into trouble, feel free to shoot us an email & we can take a closer look.

Sorry katie_ko:

That is not the case as my Roku TV is streaming normally. All other sites load normally without delay. Even seeing it when clicking on image as image page loads there is a delay in filling the fave,download,etc.. Icons and a delay in loading camera info,groups,albums and tags. on the stats page loads then there is a delay of stats graph of 3-5 seconds delay.

Going to Amazon,Store,etc to my email accounts give no delays. Only on Flickr and only hang is combo.static no other flicker servers give that kind of delay.
