.ie sites slow to load behind corporate firewall

    Anyone seeing slow load times on .ie sites the past few days? I am seeing it behind our corporate firewall. Asked a former colleague to check and his new company is affected too. We use a fortigate, he is on a checkpoint.
    The sites are fine on home internet connection or mobile internet.


    If I try debugging on chrome, it shows errors accessing fonts.googleapis.com. All the sites seem to have that in common, they all give timeout errors accessing fonts.googleapis.com.
    GET https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Josefin+Sans:400,700 net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT



    Example sites affected:
    rte.ie
    thejournal.ie
    boards.ie

    Fortigate DNS servers always have a high response time.
    And depending on the security services on the unit, all traffic could be routed over these servers, hence the delay.
