I actually had "Enable network name resolution" disabled but I had "Enable
concurrent DNS name resolution" checked; disabling this made the file load
in about 2 seconds.

TY for the point in the right direction!

Do you have name resolution (DNS resolution) turned on?  Try turning it off:

Edit->Preferences->Name Resolution

and uncheck the "Enable network name resolution" box.
