I just got Office 1612 (build 7611.1000).
When it was downloading this update I started the Taskmanager to check the download speed because it seemed to be going very slowly. I then saw that it was sending WAY MORE than what is was receiving - up to 40Mbps send and around 200Kbps receive. I do trust Microsoft but I do wonder what the heck they were sending! Anyone have any idea?
Have a look in Settings > Update and Security > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered
Perhaps you have the Updates from more than one place turned on and you are sharing the bit you have downloaded with others over the internet (it works like a torrent). It is nothing to worry about if you don't have a cap on your bandwidth.
Thanks, that does explain it. I do have a cap on my bandwidth so it may be time to turn that bittorrent feature off.
I checked the traffic on my router and it uploaded almost 5GB on the day I got the latest office update. I wonder how long it would upload before it stops.
