Slow response times increase page abandonment with the average user only waiting 6-10 seconds before leaving a site. Response times of less than 1 second feels instantaneous to the user, while in the range of 1 second a user maintains his/her thought process. Anywhere from 6 seconds and longer, the user loses patience with the site and will abandon it.
The error could present itself by simply having a slow website due to application code. Or just a slow connection to the server overall. Which could indicate that your link is saturated and it's time to upgrade to a bigger or more servers to handle the traffic. Shared hosting is a common problem here.
When testing we expect to see that the server responds with content for the user to start processing in under a second at a minimum, and ideally this would happen as close to 100ms (the goldy locks zone of response time) as possible.
