Very slow page load times with shields up

Description of the issue:
When accessing any site on the google domain (docs, maps, gmail, search), the page load times are ridiculously slow, sometimes erroring out with a “network changed” message. However, the issue seems to disappear when turning shields off.

Video Replicating Issue

In the above video the site bbc.co.uk loads flawlessly on a 500mbps internet connection, but the google domain hangs. Comically I have now also encountered the same issue when trying to access imgur.com to upload the video, so I will update this post when I can access the site to upload.

The issue is also present when using the url bar as a search bar with google set as the preferred search engine

I have done a full reinstall of Brave, pinged the domains in CMD to verify connection and accessed sites in Edge with no problem. I will be changing over to Firefox until this is resolved

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. open Brave
  2. Go to google
  3. Profit

Expected result:
Sh1t load times

Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71
