Actually, Microsoft reserves 20% of your bandwidth for windows related stuff like windows updates, troubleshoot reports etc. The tweak is that you just have to set the bandwidth for windows to 0% and your internet would definitely speed up.

- Here you would see that the “disabled” option would be checked but it is by default set to 20% even when disabled as you can read in the above snapshot. You just have to check the “Enable” option and set the bandwidth limit to 0%, which would speed up internet and ensure that you utilize 100% of your bandwidth for yourself and not for windows. This is a pretty helpful tweak for those who have slow internet connections.
