Check out the delivery optimization improvements included by Microsoft in the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16241.

New Delivery Optimization features

Delivery Optimization is the primary downloader for content queued from Windows Update and Windows Store and is what makes downloads from Windows Store much faster and Quality and Feature the updates more reliable.

The main settings page is now named Delivery Optimization and it shows that while you can enable/disable the P2P functionality, Delivery Optimization is still used when you download updates and apps straight from Microsoft’s content servers. You can configure various Download and Upload settings via Delivery Optimization Advanced Options.

In case you have limited connectivity, you are now able to use the Download settings to throttle your download speed for downloads taking place in the background.

If you enable the option to download from other PCs on the Internet, you may want to restrict the use of your upload bandwidth by throttling the upload speed or the total amount of bytes to different devices by enabling a monthly upload limit.

Activity Monitor improvements

Here, you can see the overall bandwidth used in downloads of operating system updates including Feature and Quality updates and Store App downloads and updates from your device. You will be able to see exactly the amount of data coming from other machines on your local network or other PC from the Internet based on your settings. It is important to remember that the data will reflect the bandwidth used since the first day of each month.
