This has NOTHING to do with the post update reboot, and everything to do with Win 10 downloading whenever the computer and connection to huges is up. It can't be stopped, and eats up your FAP and effectively shuts you down.
You could always go with a Linux Distribution.
Personally have three Windows 10 PCs. No problems with them eating all of my data. Other than the most recent month, due to the Anniversary Update, I have never gone over 6GB of Anytime Data and Bonus Bytes in a month, combined. Again, that's keeping three Windows 10 PCs up to date, along with the non Windows programs, as well.
It sounds like more than Windows 10 eating your data. You need to do some digging to find out what it is.
Thanks for the detailed response. But the problem is that when you use up your allowance, the connection is so throttled I often can't even reach step one.
quote = gwalk900 "I guess the point is, monitor your rate of usage so that you never FAP in the first place." Can't do that if MS downloads updates automatically. That's the real point.
"Secondly, the process illustrated allows you to pre-purchase and stage for use blocks of token data to be automatically used in the event they are needed.
There is no reason to wait until you are already in FAP." YOU CAN DO THIS??? WHERE??? I've always wanted this.

Other than the anniversary update, which was written about for quite some time before it happened, the updates aren't that big, so it's entirely possible. Nay, entirely doable. Three W10 PCs here, and even with the anniversary updates on all, still haven't gone over. Paying attention to usage and data is the "real point".
YOU CAN DO THIS??? WHERE??? I've always wanted this.Sign into the dashboard and use "Token Management" or do it through the Status Meter by clicking "Purchase Tokens" on the upper right.
