Windows 10: Windows Update - Choose how you Download in Windows 10
I think you are correct . It stacks up with my own observations, but as I very seldom have more than one PC on my LAN these days wanting to do updates, it is no longer an issue for me.

Starting today, Windows Insiders that have Delivery Optimization enabled will be able to download new Insider Preview builds, OS updates, and app updates from other PCs on their local network as well as from other PCs on the Internet. We introduced Delivery Optimization with the Windows 10 November Update giving users the ability to get updates from PCs on a local network and are now enabling the ability to get updates from PCs on the Internet. When enabled, your PC may also send parts of apps or updates that you have downloaded using Delivery Optimization to other PCs.
Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14915 for PC and Mobile
Shawn, I was just thinking about this, since it is what they are pushing in 14915, I have been using it a few months now, and haven't really noticed a difference on my PC, maybe it helps others though.
This could be that I don't update every thing at once.
But I'm side tracking here,
what I really wanted to post is, if someone really wants or needs to use this option, they need to make sure they DON'T delete the files with Disk Cleanup or any other disk cleaner the has the option.
The Delivery Optimization Files option in Disk Cleanup should be safe to delete since it says that it deletes previously downloaded files. I would think that the service would just download the files again if needed after being deleted.
What was your experience?
I have noticed no difference with it on or off. My internet is 25 & 5, and as I usually force an update when I know one is coming, so that may have something to do with it. But for people with slow or metered connections, I personally think they should use this option.
If I was still using USB Mobile Broadband, like I did up till a short while ago, then, no question, DO would be a "Must" for me.
Agreed. It'll help reduce Internet bandwidth usage.
I presume the processes in this tutorial work regardless of which version of WIN 10 you have ( Pro, Home, etc)?
