Debugging Telus' Core Web Vitals issues

On mobile, the Telus' website is relatively slow compared to other websites in Canada.

According to PageSpeed Insights, the First Contentful Paint (FCP), which is usually the first sight of content one sees to signify that the page is indeed loading, is recorded at 3.3 seconds. Note for First Contentful Paint to be considered good, it should be less than 1.8 seconds. The Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) which usually is the largest asset on the page is recorded at 5.2 seconds. This generally means the user will have to wait for a little over 5 seconds for the page to have loaded the important contents in the viewport.
