Slow imdb.com response time

Over the last couple of weeks, the response time of imdb.com pages has become very slow and erratic.  Sometimes pages take ten seconds or more to show up.  I'm on a new, relatively powerful Windows 10 PC running Edge; other sites seem fine, except Amazon.com.  Clearing cookies doesn't solve the problem.  Imdb response time on my wife's iPhone seems normal.  Suggestions?

Nick, it's the fact that everyone is at home using their computers on the internet.
Coronavirus!!!
It's a bandwidth problem.
I can't stream things from several sites during the daytime either.
When the world goes back to normal, so will the internet.

Thanks, Ed.  That's my suspicion too, and I'm guessing Imdb may be using Amazon's servers, which (hard as it is to believe) may be overloaded with people ordering toilet paper (guilty... but that was before C19.)
