Image files very slow TTFB

We have a site at Site is hosted with Netlify but DNS is held elsewhere. The site is fairly image intensive although all images have been optimised and also lazy loaded.

We’re seeing a very long TTFB when the website requests the image assets (see below).

Often these images might only be 170kb and take 6 seconds to come down. Half of this is waiting for a response which is not great. What can we do to resolve this (apart from move the NS to Netlify)?



We have moved the NS to Netlify in the hope of trying to resolve this but the TTFB has gone up (although the image download speed has dropped significantly.

I’m somewhat at a loss on this - can anyone help with this?
