@dslynn17,

There are always variables.  I would suggest you use any of these to determine download speed.

As always, the best speed is with an ethernet cable.  Wi-FI can be slower.

Thank you....but....what updates could possibly be needed EVERY DAY?  When I open my security and privacy....tells me that I am completely updated....but rest assured when I turn it on again, it will say wait...updating?!

@dslynn17,

Just remember to define the time of the metered service, so it will do it when scheduled.  My original question about your MB/rate of Internet Service.

@Huffer,

Thanks for the comment.
