    Windows 10 1703 updating over Metered connection

    I have 3 windows 10 1703 machines on a Metered connection, however windows update just installed KB4022725 (OS Build 15063.413) on each of them over the last 2 days why? Metered connection is set to "ON".

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    The wording of the update settings change subtly for 1703, some updates will now be downloaded over a metered connection...
