Could be a DNS issue or the www.example.com and the example.com do not resolve to the same IP.

Try doing a dig or nslookup on the two. If they are both going to the same IP, there should be no difference in the speed unless there is some server side bandwidth throttling that impacts one domain and not the other.

Try doing an strace on the wget. That'll show you want system calls are taking the time.
