Adblock on causes very slow browsing using default settings

I activated Telstra Game Optimiser this morning. Unfortunately one of the features I was looking forward to doesn't work well straight out of the box.

Using a mixture of IOS devices and Windows machines, all were serving general websites very slowly, some specific websites intermittently refused to load at all. e.g.
   www.news.com.au     www.couriermail.com.au   Sometimes when they did load it took a good 10-15 seconds.

I was expecting this feature to be configured so it doesn't slow down or even prevent a website from loading. All other web blockers I have tried don't have this sort of behavior.

I did observe that the device is very 'CPU' busy all the time. The example below is with Ad Blocking disabled. It's about the same with it on.

 

Can anyone shed some light if they had any better luck with this feature?

Thanks for all the information!

Just to confirm, websites are loading at a normal pace with adblocker off then?

If CPU usage is high with both adblocker on or off then I doubt adblocker is related to that.

Add websites that you use most often that you've noticed load slowly or not at all to the Adblocker whitelist, then you can re-enable it and continue to block ads without your browsing experience being affected.
