My first windows 8 confuzzling

I just installed Windows 8. While most of the computer is preforming acceptably, there are a couple significant issues. The most prominent is that of connection speeds. Regular desktop programs are fine, but Windows 8 apps are really really slow!

I got an SSD drive and installed windows 8 64-bit today. Windows 8 has two types of programs. The typical ones you know from previous versions, and now there are apps from the appstore.
My regular programs work at typical connection speeds. Windows 8 apps from the appstore have a connection, but it is extremely slow. Possibly a magnitude slower. What's the difference?
I'm puzzled, and I hope some of you have some ideas. My Google search terms are not turning up any interesting results.
