Re: Sharing such files over the LAN should help...

I might suggest that at least one aspect of 'the issue' is Microsoft deciding that, by default, an unknown amount of a user's potentially capped bandwidth be used for the convenience of other people, without those other people contributing to the potential cost of that user and without that user's consent in advance. Although I wouldn't be surprised if someone were to be able to find a line in the Licensing Agreement that says Microsoft can spend your money for you too.
