Only have download speed issues, when Microsoft Servers are under load, besides that it works perfectly.

In fact I had to limit the download speed on OneDrive, to avoid bottlenecking my connection when lots of files are being updated.

Do you use 3rd party DNS servers? If you do maybe they don't point you at the right Content Delivery Networks. I used to have mysteriously slow download speeds when I was using 3rd party DNS but when I used my ISP's DNS servers it was fast.
