Here is a great infographic from our hosting partner, WPEngine. It shows how important it is to have a fast website.
We offer WPEngine hosting plans that are better, and less expensive, than if you went to them directly. Our large-scale plan is working on a dedicated environment (as opposed to the shared environment you get in an individual plan), and our pricing, including CDN, etc. comes out lower than their listed price.
Now that is a win-win!
