How to prevent Windows 10 from using your Bandwidth

Windows 10 has the ability to use your bandwidth to seed it's own updates, we will show you how to disable it and give you full use of your own internet connection.



Read more on how to prevent Windows 10 from using your bandwidth to seed updates.

Well, if you're looking to save your Internet connection bandwidth or data usage then you SHOULD enable it - but only for local machines.

In this mode it's essentially a domain-free Windows Server Update Service: your PC will download the updates when possible, then seed those updates to other machines on your network, this will use slightly more local bandwidth (of which most people will have a Gigabit) and less Internet bandwidth (which most people will have only around 20Mbps of bandwidth for).

If you disable the whole local seed update system, all machines will then use the Internet Connection ONLY for their updates; if you have 5 systems in your house, that's 5x more bandwidth and 5x more data used.

Think smart on this one, it's a brilliant piece of tech.

I agree that turning off the seeding to external clients is a good idea and will save a small amount of bandwidth. However turning off internal seeding will increase the amount of bandwidth you use as you will have to download it for every client.

As far as i know the default setting is off external and on internally and this is how you should leave it.

By default it shares with everyone mate.

I have done several Windows 10 installs and can confirm this.

I've done 3 so far and all have been set to local only - this would seem to indicate that perhaps it takes instruction from one of the boolean options during the setup process.

I changed all that stuff when i did the update. it was all there during the install, so as long as you read everything during install you would have "well i assume you would have" disabled it already. I know i did..

I couldn't agree more, this was a stroke of genius. It's a mini-WSUS server with limited options, but who cares in a small household / small business environment.
