Probably no one really cares about the speed of a web page loading, but search engines do.
I use my phone’s quota limited data plan as a hotspot for my laptop because I live in a rural area. I got the text saying it would renew today, so I went ahead an watched a movie, that ate up the last of the quota, and so now I am on the super slow 128b/sec “unlimited” portion until it renews.
I went to the WP forums and as it is almost all text, it didn’t seem any different than normal. I had to look up something on their Make blog for an answer, and that took awhile to load (every latest post and all comments on one page).
Then I came here, and it took longer than the Make blog to load. It seems like this is mostly text, like the WP forums, but it is a lot slower.
Anyway, I’m not sure that there is anything to fix, but it’s interesting to me that it’s slow loading.
