    i'm uploading a bunch of stuff to onedrive. the upload speed initially was fast, but then slowed down to a trickle. i'm trying to move maybe 30 gigs of data up to onedrive and it's been chugging along for about 16 hours. still not down. i thought maybe comcast was the reason the upload was taking so long...like maybe they throttle after x amount of data used over y amount of time, but if i stop the upload to onedrive and start it again, the initial few files load quickly, then the trickle.

    is this due to onedrive, comcast, or something else? i'm hoping i can remedy the speed issue somehow.

    OneDrive is slow, there was a test online recently.

    In my experience, OneDrive is only limited by the speed of your connection. What you are describing sounds like Comcast is either throttling or is charging you for high speed access that actually only achieves the speed in a burst mode rather than as a sustained mode. It is also possible your machine is switching to a low power state after a period of inactivity but I would bet on the provider.

    It is very slow for me too. In my university i have gigabit upload but OneDrive is uploading with 20mbit/s max. With the newest win 10 version it is better now. I get around 50-70mbit up, which is still a lot slower then my upload speed.
