Large repository on gitlab.com is very slow to access

Hi,

I created a private clone of the main chromium browser repo (https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/) on Gitlab.com. The repo was created without issue, which is great. Github and Bitbucket both reject it because it’s a huge repository.

I’ve found however that the web UI is extremely slow to load pages within that repo. I did a quick test with a locally-hosted Gitlab and it seems quite speedy. So my question is: is the slowness on Gitlab.com something I’m doing wrong, something I should report as a bug, or just expected for the free hosting?
