We have an Access database on a Win 2012 R2 server locally.  The backend and frontend are separate and each user has there own frontend.  

When they use it from the office where it is stored the performance is very poor.

When they access it via Citrix, it is extremely fast.  

This makes no sense to me.  Why is it faster over an MPLS connection?

How can I improve local performance?
