Over the past months the performance of the marketplace sites had been very bad. After the dos attack it never seemed to recover, at least by accessing it from my country. The sites take ages to load. They load but it takes from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Sometimes they perform better but most of the times they are unusable. This is surely affecting the market in terms of sales and usability.
Is it going to be better any time soon? I am sure you are aware of the issue.
