These days, laptop owners no longer make use of Modem to browse as it's gradually going extinct, few users that are financially okay make use of wireless broadband like spectranet or smile, while most users subscribes on their smartphone and connects it to their system through Wi-Fi and hot-spot connection.



Browsing on smartphone consumes less data than browsing on the system and there are many reason for this. Most times, after connecting our phone internet to our laptops, by the time we open 2 or 3 pages on any browser, we find out that our Lets say 500mb night plan sub have been reduced to 100mb or less.

This is very painful and this post is made as a result of my personal experience and encounter. If this has happened to you, you will know what I mean. Due to this problem, many laptop owners have decided not to ever browse on their system using their mobile data except they connect to any free public available Wi-Fi.



How to solve this issue

  • A new page will open, click the drop down menu 
  • Select "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them"
  • Or you can select " Never Check for updates" though it is not recommended.
