Hello Windows 10 users!

I have noticed that the Windows 10 location service has a MAJOR flaw!,it just annihilates internet download and upload speeds!

Tested with Network Speed Test(Windows App store):

With Location service(from action center) turned off I have:
Download: 65.36 Mbps
Upload: 146.36 Mbps

With Location service(from action center) turned on I have:
Download: 30.79 Mbps
Upload: 43.31 Mbps

The app: Your request appears to be from an automated process


Tested with Speedtest.net(tested an hour later,explains the changes in numbers between apps):

With Location service(from action center) turned off I have:

Download: 43.27 Mbps
Upload: 151.75 Mbps

I have noticed while testing that rapid fluctuation took place when testing with the service turned on,when it was on the speeds were smooth,and did not change much.When the service was on it spiked up and down like crazy.

The Location service ruins my internet(and probably for you too),that is why you probably should turn it off.
