Metered Data

Metered Data

I am receiving notification that some of my upgrades can't download because I'm on metered data. Why? My internet is part of my bundle and I never had this issue before.

Re: Metered Data

That's not a message Comcast would send you. Are you on a mobile device?

Win 10 has a meter setting.

Do a google on win10 metered connection.

If you are using Windows 10, and if this is a WiFi connection, single click on the WiFi icon in the system tray on the lower right. Now click on "Properties". On the next "Settings" screen you'll see a button for toggling the "Metered Connection" feature on and off. If it's set to on, click it to off.

If it is a Win10 laptop, the instructions apply to you.
