- Is domU <-> dom0 slow aswell? 
- Is domU <-> internet slow? 

- Do you have errors on domU ethX interfaces?
- Do you have errors no dom0 interfaces (pethx, all bridges, all vifs).

- Does domU or dom0 have high CPU-usage? What does "top" show in dom0,
  and in domU?

- What does "xm top" say about CPU usage? 

- Do you have errors in the logs? Please check
        - dom0 dmesg
        - dom0 /var/log/messages
        - Xen log: "xm log"
        - Xen dmesg: "xm dmesg"
        - domU dmesg
        - domU /var/log/messaegs

Please try all of the above.
