  1. Are you aware that this is a Myth. Windows doesn’t actually reserve 20% of your bandwidth all the time, it priorities 20% to programs that request high priority access to your network connection. This is part of QoS.

    100% of your connection is always available, however if a high priority program requests bandwidth Windows will force at least 20% for that programs use.

  2. I think it works. The average speed in my uttorent increased when i did this
