Printing to Network Printers SLOW!!!

I am experiencing some issues with printing to our network printers. I have a PDF file, it is a 2MB file, but when I print, the progress bar will sit there for 1 minute before it starts processing, then it hits the server, so I check the printer queue on my workstation and see that the file is spooling 73.3MB of data.

The problem is it is spooling at 15-20K a second, so this print job takes about 20 minutes before the printer starts processing.

Where can I look or what can I do to find out why taking so long to spool, then how can I fix this? Would a new driver potentially fix? Is it something on the server itself?
