Using Chrome on Spectrum network is sketchy

I find it really puzzling...

When using internet on Google Chrome using a Spectrum IP it always seems to be lagging and slow to respond.

But I can VPN into my company's network and everything works as it should.

Anyone else have same issue?

Others complain on this forum about Mozillla's FireFox and Microsoft Internet Explorer or Edge.  Most users think that higher data speeds always make web pages load quicker.  It seems that every browser does something that a few users don't like.  Google Chrome does do some unusual things that others don't, like pre-caching page content from Google sites and regularly pinging Google servers, which puts a heavier peak traffic load on the transport network.  That can cause problems on shared networks that don't bother VPNs which are obviously private.  Pick another browser and keep trying.
