Installed games are constantly updated for enhancements and stability. These updates can be large and can often take up a lot of bandwidth for downloading.
When using Epic Games Launcher which is a desktop client for gaming through Epic Games, you have the choice of restricting the bandwidth for such downloads.
Here is how:
Log in to Epic Games Launcher and click on Settings.
Then, enable the option of Throttle Downloads.
0 means no throttling while any other value specified will be in KB/s. Set the value as per your Internet bandwidth.
From now on, downloading of the updates for Epic Games Launcher and the installed games will be throttled and won’t take up a lot of bandwidth.
