    Go into your settings and set as "metered connection"
    Will only download when you tell it to!

    It isn't being offered/pushed for free anymore. You now have to pay for it.

    Yes, i've done this since having Windows 10 as i only use mobile broadband with limited data. When it's getting towards the end of the billing period i just check how much data i have remaining and how much needs to download from the updates and switch off the metered connection for a short while.
