speed is down to serveral issues.

1.
The hosting - is it shared - is it free - Normally the cheaper the hosting package the slower the speed.

2.
The modifications done to the forum - more mods = more sql statements to run = slower speed.

3.
Bottlenecks in the path/route to the server. Hosting in say the US with all the members in the UK will give a time lag on the atlantic hop between the machines.

4.
Size of the DB/forum
