I have configure squid proxy in our network on ubuntu server. All the traffic being divert to proxy server by Mikrotik router. After I configure squid proxy I changed /etc/squid3/squid.conf as

http_port 8080  #changed from default port 3128
/var/log/squid3/access.log #uncomment access log
variable_hostname myproxy #added
http_access allow all  #added

I have added following lines to squid.conf to make squid highly anonymous

forwarded_for transparent
header_access Allow allow all
header_access Authorization allow all
header_access Cache-Control allow all
header_access Content-Encoding allow all
header_access Content-Length allow all
header_access Content-Type allow all
header_access Date allow all
header_access Expires allow all
header_access Host allow all
header_access If-Modified-Since allow all
header_access Last-Modified allow all
header_access Location allow all
header_access Pragma allow all
header_access Accept allow all
#header_access Accept-Enncoding allow all
header_access Accept-Language allow all
header_access Content-Language allow all
header_access Mime-Version allow all
header_access Cookie allow all
header_access Set_Cookie allow all
header_access Retry-After allow all
header_access Title allow all
header_access Connection allow all
header_access Proxy-Connection allow all
header_access All deny all
header_replace User-Agent anonymous

Now internet connection for our network is very slow. The moment I disable the rule which divert all traffic to squid proxy server we get faster internet. How can I make squid proxy server very fast.

Additional Info

OS: Ubuntu server 12.04.
RAM: 512 MB.
HardDisk: 80 GB.
Processor: Pentium 4.
Squid: version 3.1.19

I didn't configure cache in squid to make internet fast but no use.
