Downloading Windows 10 Pro over a metered Internet connection
(This section is only shown on the Download version of Windows 10 Pro Full Version)
A metered Internet connection is when a service provider charges by the amount of data sent and received by your PC. Windows 10 Pro is a large file: about 3 GB. Before you start the download on a metered Internet connection, be sure to:
- Check your current usage, and then figure out if this download might result in additional charges.
- Allow enough time for the download to finish. Most people with a broadband Internet connection complete the download in an hour or two, but download times will vary based on your connection speed and other factors.
