Performance Issue: HttpURLConnection

I am developing a server application, which has to query another server to get the info it needs. So, in my Servlet program, first I send request to the remote URL through HttpURLConnection.The code is like following:
String strURL = "...";
URL url = new URL(strURL);
conn = (HttpURLConnection)url.openConnection();
reader = new BufferedReader(new
while((line = reader.readLine())!=null){
//process the line

}catch(Exception e){
//do nothing
This approach works, but I found it is pretty slow. Most of time is spent on the statement to get the BufferedReader...
Any advice?
