      Since he is business the traffic is allocated to him and his works yours don't. ISP will prioritize certain IPS to work better for him instead of a peasant like us.

    Wow, after reading all the comments and the consensus being that most comments are about the users speeds on their internet connection hovering around a dismal 300kbps that's very jaded in todays gaming world where it's expected that users download the game at an average of 60Gigs per game then as that weren't enough still use that pathetic connection to be shared in the house.
    Then, there's most that will have a CAP on the monthly usage on top of it all in the fluffy whipped cream! I know this all too well myself and escaped that recently by moving for work and locked in a fibre connection that caps at half a gig download speed unlimited data.
    It's very discerning to know how pleasurable my connection is now versus the third world shoddy connection I had.

    Do you know how much of an A hole you are barging about your internet speed ? Think about the people around the world who are still on ADSL. ISP are regulated by the government and AVAILABLE infrastructure. I get 1000 down 500 up for 20 bucks but someone watching thins in a rural area feels bad... Please think internet regulations and what is the viable tech in the area and connect to them 2

    Does the windows update version of this work better than microsoft’s own WSUS server? I was considering deploying a WSUS server, but might use this instead if there are pros to it, since steam caching would be useful when I have friends over, considering I only have 200mbps internet. (What can I say, I’m cheap)
