    What is the big deal - it only takes seconds to turn metered connection off.
    It's a big deal if you are on a tight capped connection. Turning off metered connections doesn't just affect windows update, it allows all other apps to use the connection too. For example, Spotlight will download a new batch of images as soon as you turn it off.

    Re 'What is the big deal': Just because there's a work-around (turning metered off and then back on again) doesn't mean there's not a problem.

    This problem may be fixed after the 1709 update.

    Yes, you're right. Thank you for reminding me I had opened this thread - it's time to mark it 'Solved'.

    In fact, the fix in the Fall Creators update has addressed the other part of this issue too...

    If you are on the Creators Update then some essential updates will supposedly be downloaded even on metered connections. There was a subtle change in the wording than first appeared in 1703.

    It's this that doesn't seem to be working as intended. I haven't yet seen anything download on a metered connection...
    It now seems to be working as intended and I have seen updates that download over a metered connection...

    ...Checking for updates over metered connections now appears to work as intended, and it is becoming clear which updates are "required to keep Windows running smoothly". Apparently a Flash security update is too urgent to delay, while a cumulative update can wait for an unmetered connection.
