I believe the Dev mailing list may have some of your technical answers

It appears from that list that the database servers are now a few
hundreds of miles from where the web servers are, causing the increase
in latency. I do not know if this is a permanent change, the thread on
osm-dev does seem to indicate that things are still in flux.
