I have just ctarted using LR again after a break of a few months and need to install a newer version throught the creative cloud. Now when using Lightroom the sync is very slow, it has taken 20 minutes this morning to sync 2 photos and is still working on another 87 that have been trying to sync over the last 2 days. 
The next proble is that the syncing operation is using all my bandwidth and not allowing me to access the internet, I have tried restricting the transfer speed to 25% to limit the problem but this has had no effect. If I wish to browse the internet I have to pause all syncing in order to do so. 
I am coming to the renewal of my subscription and will be making my decision based on any solutions to this problem

How fast is your Internet connection? What does peg your upload speed at? I'm not having issues with synchronisation performance (although my Internet connection is relatively good).

There's a good chance it's catching up with changes made to the cloud database. Can you leave it on overnight and see if it finishes catching up while you sleep?
