vnc go slow

I have installed the vnc server of the fedora 8 and seems to go
very slowly on the internet. I looked at the web and found
some alternatives, tightvnc in particular, and I would like to
know which of them I could use to get a faster and optimized
setup with linux (not only fedora, but in general).

VNC protocol in general works in same way irrespective of the VNC applications. But it is some features like wallpaper, resolution etc which affects your speed. Most of the VNC application comes with option to configure those parameters. Try changing those to see the difference.
I have good experience with tightVNC.
And very importantly your bandwith affects your VNC session.
