    WebPageTest.org default Dulles region agent servers seem to be on new architecture according to creator's Twitter post Patrick Meenan on Twitter
    And seems the change has improved tested page speed times for default Dulles Chrome Cable 5Mbps tests (yes pagespeed depends on both speed of your server and the test server).

    This is forum index page on new Dulles WPT Agents Speedindex is around 600-1100ms faster than the old Dulles WPT Agents

    Need to test more to confirm it. But if others regularly test on WPT Dulles region, maybe retest now and see if numbers are better due to new Dulles WPT Agent architecture.

    Did a few retests on WPT Dulles region and definitely much faster now SpeedIndex previously was aroun 1400-1900ms and now consistently around 850ms

    SpeedIndex (perceived visual render time) is more inline with what I see with California WPT region which is faster as this forum's Linode VPS is in Fremont, California.
