We are using O365/SharePoint Online 2013.
Is there anything that can be done to get rid of the sluggishness in SharePoint Online? Sometimes when changing a page it can take up to 6 seconds easily. On average changing page (navigating) takes around 2-3 seconds and the overall feel is really sluggish and sticky.
I have searched the internet high and low but all I could find was tips and tricks for on-premises versions of SharePoint telling to improve the hardware and configure/close some processes etc.
Is this sluggishness normal for SharePoint Online and if not, is there something that could beef it up a bit?
EDIT: For testing purposes I created a new Site Collection in the SharePoint Online Admin Center. Without making any customizations (CSS, themes etc.) I created a few pages and a sub site to the new Site Collection. They seem to be almost as sluggish as our official intranet (the root Site Collection).
EDIT 2: I wonder if it boils down to the network/distance lag. I've noticed that really often around 50% of the loading time goes into the "waiting for server" -phase or similar. This would mean that it might be impossible to do anything about it.
EDIT 3: Some additional questions. Which is better for performance, web part pages or the "team/wiki pages" or are they indifferent regarding performance? Also can it impact performance if there are 10 previous versions of a page?
