Windows 10 Fall Creators Update allows you to optimize the update bandwidth


If you are using Windows 10, it allows you to enable the update delivery optimization, which helps the system to download the Windows updates and apps from internet as well as PCs within the local network. When enabled, it also uploads update from your PC to internet.

 

Along with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can control the bandwidth that you want to use for Windows update download and upload. Let's learn how to do this.

Scroll down in this screen to find the Upload settings panel, which will allow you to control how much bandwidth you want to allocate for uploading updates to other PCs on the internet. It will also allow you to limit the monthly upload limit. Once that threshold reaches, your device will stop uploading to other PCs on the internet.

A chart is available at the bottom of the screen, which provides you an idea about the total monthly usages to upload the data to the internet. It also provides you the graph on how much data is left to reach the threshold value.
