    W10TP Takes ages to install

    Since I have a 75/75 connection, I thought I'd install it but it takes ages with me only getting 80 to 150 KB/second. Why is this?

    Sounds like you're talking about download time, not installation time -- and download time is seriously affected by server load.

    • Hi Mark, I never thought about that. The servers must be absolutely overloaded

    So far so good but how can I choose how fast to get the updates? I do not see a Windows update tile.
