I know that symptom as well.  RET on a group and gnus tries to fetch the
whole internet, but using `gnus-agent-fetch-session' before entering a
group works very quick.  So now I use this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun th-gnus-get-news-and-agent-fetch (arg)
  "First look for new news via `gnus-group-get-new-news' and then
let the agent fetch it via `gnus-agent-fetch-session'.
Equivalent to `g' followed by `J s' in *Group*."
  (interactive "P")
  (gnus-group-get-new-news arg)

(define-key gnus-group-mode-map (kbd "C-c g")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Before starting to read my subscribed newsgroups, I hit `C-c g' (instead
of the usual `g') which checks for new articles and downloads them.
This works quite fast, and afterwards RET or SPACE on a group enters
them instantly.
