Unfortunately, this isn't too easy to fix.

Proxies by nature are usually notoriously slow. The best way to fix this is to simply disable the proxy when not necessary. For example, if it is a business proxy, ONLY enable it when on-campus or when you need to access something on the company network.

You can also contact the proxy administrator to see if they can do something to speed it up. However, they probably won't be able to do anything.
