You have problems you're not telling us about with reference to how you're using this function; I do not see the same performance 'problem' you see for 2000 records:

SQL> _at_customer_ref_cur_ex
SQL> create table customer(

  2          cust_id    number,

  5          cust_addr2 varchar2(50),
  6          cust_pst_cd varchar2(10),
  7          cust_cntct  varchar2(40),
  8          cust_email  varchar2(80)

  9 );
