Here's the updated data
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/150207_E0_JMW/
Here are some more hints:

- pick a better DNS hosting company, which better performance and more POPs. This test is quite old but it might still be helpful; you can also reproduce such a test on your own: http://blog.cloudharmony.com/2012/08/com...d-dns.html
- try to use a CDN if you have enough traffic to keep its caches populated. If I were you, I would actually use it anyway for all the content(including dynamic), even if only for the sake of faster TCP connection setup(that's 400ms in your case, so are you perhaps being impacted by the TCP slow start?), but you need to pick a vendor who has edges close to where your users are, but most of them are good in the US. It would also mostly hide the TCP slow start problem.
- try to combine your JS and CSS files into a single file
- you can also embed the images into your then unified CSS, as base64 data objects, or at least load them before the google ads stuff.
- if possible try to make your HTML static (thus cacheable by CDNs)
- try to inline your CSS and JS into your HTML, but use this with care since this conflicts with the CDN so you might not be able to do this if you can't actually make the HTML static.

If possible, ignore the Google ads stuff from the tests since most of that is irrelevant to your actual user experience and just interferes with your measurements. I would consider using the speed index instead of the total time to load the page, or you can take the moment when the visual progress reaches 90%. It would be nice to have a custom WPT metric based on something like that, I have no idea if this is possible.

I hope this helps you make it even faster.
