Implement a comprehensive bandwidth scheduler
If you're serious about providing huge amounts of storage to home users, you need make it possible for them to upload huge amounts of data without killing their network.
Many home users have limited upload bandwidth.
What's needed is a scheduler. Users should be able to tell OneNote when to upload at full-speed, and when to use only part of the bandwidth. For most users, this will mean full-speed overnight, and slower during the day. But the scheduler needs to be flexible enough to meet everyone's needs.

See my suggestion for a workaround at: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6798185-sync-scheduler
If you don't fix the bandwidth hogging issue then this is a good workaround, but I don't think it will work for the average user who doesn't even want to think about how the files get to the cloud, they just want them to get there. It would be better to fix the issue where OneDrive takes out all available network bandwidth instead. Still voting for this idea though because it's a good one either way.

This is important to business users too. My clients are mobile and use mobile wifi in order to connect to the net. If all their data allowance is eaten up by OneDrive synchronisation, they won't be happy.
They currently use LiveDrive to perform a synchronised backup and this allows you to set what time of day to synchronise, meaning that it can be restricted to evenings only, when the user is on their home broadband.
OneDrive seems to have 2 options - on or off! Needs more control
