  • Windows 10 and your bandwidth

    It appears Microsoft will use its customers' upload bandwidth to deliver Windows 10's updates and apps with a P2P technology resembling BitTorrent. You may not want this happening and it is a feature you can turn off. Suggest read http://www.itnews.com/windows/95335/...thash.T9Np2XYo

    Thanks for the info. I disabled it.

    Question - would the background uploading Microsoft would conduct to spread these updates potentially affect online gameplay?

      Depending on your bandwidth, yes, it could. For reference, this is also how World of Warcraft distributes updates by default.

      I disabled it as well.

        For you guys that have Windows 10, is it worth getting? What are the pros and cons?

            I like poking around in the settings. I thought it was clever to allow machines on the same network to share the updates, but I turned off the internet sharing piece. Maybe if I had more than 2 Mbps up I would leave it on, but TWC doesn't think anyone needs more than that.

              I left this on, but chose "For PCs on my network only". I have other desktops that are slowly getting moved over to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Would be nice not to have to download the same updates 5x in a row sucking up my limited data per month.

                Limited data? I've feared cable going the direction of wireless providers. That would suck.

                  This has been in practice for a while at Comcast. I've got Comcast. I download like a boss. Just this month, I've reformatted both PCs and re-downloaded all of my games and etc from Steam, Origin... Elder Scrolls Online... all of the drivers because my PCs are custom, etc etc.

                  I'm still at like 150 gigs for the month. Worry when that 300 gig limit drops down to like 100 for the month. THAT will suck.
