Go to "Start" > "Run" and type "gpedit.msc." Navigate to "Administrative templates" > "Network" > "QoS packet scheduler" > "Limit reservable bandwidth" > "Enabled." Replace "20%" with "0%." Once you click "OK" and restart your computer, you will feel an immediate boost in the broadband speed

20% bandwidth is reserved for system eg. Windows update etc. This is the procedure to disable the reservation.

I tried it but it didn't show any remarkable improvement.


I am the master of my Fate.
@TheMost: the oldest tweak to gain speed...
in windows by default 20% of total bandwidth is preserved for windows to download
essential updates such as security & hotfixes.
but its not mandatory to keep it 20% all the time thats y deallocating it to 0%.


Simply.. Evolution !!
