    Windows 10 Updates download sucking up bandwidth

    I work for a small company. We have no WSUS server. I've noticed that if I build a fresh machine and go to run the updates, it consume our entire internet connection. This did not / does not happen with our Windows 7 machines.
    We have a 30 MB connection, when no updates our going, our average use is about 8 mb. When the updates start to download it jumps all the way up to 30MB any every computer on the network has trouble getting to any website. At times, the website will just time out.

    I've turned on and off the options to get updates from more than one source. Machines on Lan, on the internet...ect.
    Changing the settings does not seem to change the amount of bandwidth it sucks up while downloading the updates.

    Has anyone else had the same problem or know how to resolve it?

    If you have a router with QoS, can try setting bandwidth limits on the ports that WUDO (the Windows update delivery optimization) uses. It's TCP 7680 and UDP 3544.
