It was my understanding that the updates are using a BitTorrent style of distribution, not really for within your LAN, but for other users globally. I think you can disable that — but if you don’t, updates you receive can be transmitted bock out to other sites.

Since most service providers have a much slower upload speed, that might be a problem if much of that traffic is taking place. And certainly for those ISPs that are looking to justify placing bandwidth caps — it certainly doesn’t help keep your potential connection costs down.
