A new tutorial titled How to configure metered connections in Windows 8 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.
A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:
As Windows 8 is designed to be used on mobile devices as well as desktop computers, it includes a feature called metered connections. A metered connection is a network connection where you have a limited amount of data usage per month and if you go over that amount you get billed extra charges. If you are using a network connection that has a limited data plan, then it is important to enable it as a metered connection so Windows 8 knows not to download device updates or Windows updates over it. Once a connection is configured as a metered connection system downloads will only be allowed when you are on your normal wireless connection.
We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
