That's what I've experienced, too. After using HTTPS for two or three
days it seemed as if it'd get much faster. By now (just tested) There's
almost no difference between HTTP and HTTPS.

Oh, I didn't configure anything, to be honest. Knowing that gpg fetches
missing keys without any help from user, I'd guess that these longer
periods of time are just the time to get the certificates for the forst
time. Maybe you can test whether a second call of the page is faster?
If I remember correctly, it was like this. Don't take this as fact, it's
-as already told- only theory ;-)....
