Disable Reserved Bandwidth

Windows reserves 20% of your bandwidth for QoS traffic, for example Windows Update, streaming videos or audio, Voip applications, etc.. You have an option to disable this reserved bandwidth to get access to 100% of your bandwidth. However, please take note that the 20% reserved bandwidth is only used when QoS applications need it. You always have access to 100% of your bandwidth when these QoS applications are not in use so only disable the 20% reserved bandwidth when it doesn't harm your experience with these applications.

Warning: Disabling the reserved bandwidth might cause problems with applications that use this bandwidth, for example Windows Update, VOIP or streaming video applications.
