NuGet "Restoring build cache" is slowing my build down, went from 4 to 7 minutes

I faced lots of issues with NuGet restore recently, and so enabled the cache as suggested on

This fixed the NuGet stability issues, but is slowing very build down by about 3 minutes: Previously the whole build was just taking about 4.

Is there anything that can be done to speed this up?

The NuGet packages that I cache should just be a couple megabytes, and the time to upload/download them to some cache should not require more than a few seconds.

    We are working on cache speed improvements. We've been hoping to start testing it this week, but it took a bit longer than expected.
