    Hi guys,

    I'm really having issues with my Macbook (2016 15") with opening websites. When I type in an address or select a favorite it sometimes takes very long to start loading the website. It hangs on the 'first byte' moment, the moment when it wants to connect with the website, before even loading any element, such as text or images. Once it's connected the page loads almost instantly. This is completely something else than having a slow internet connection. I can also verify this happens when on other networks, but isn't an issue when using a different device, such as my iPhone.

    Are any of you having issues like this?

    So subjective experience is this; I feel like I've had this problem for years across different Apple computers, sometimes I have to resort to pinging Google via terminal to get a connection faster. It does feel more pronounced on my new 2016 MBPtb.
