When evaluating the speed of a web host, we usually investigate on its data centers, servers, and other infrastructures to see whether it has a good foundation for guaranteeing peak performance. With Velcom, however, we have found no explicit information on these aspects but a self-congratulatory statement going like "Our network is designed to handle the most demanding webmasters".
In this case, we have personally signed up the company to host one of our WordPress-powered sites from September 2015. Based on the monitoring results, Velcom does not perform well in regard to loading speed. As you can see from the screen capture below, it takes nearly 1080ms for server responses, which is far from satisfying compared to the industry-standard 400ms.
