Decrease in connection speed associated with the Windows Update (Release of Security Update Programs)

August 7, 2018

Security update programs for Windows have been released by Microsoft on the second or third Wednesday (Japan time) of every month.

As large number of Windows users will download security update programs released through the Windows Update, network data traffic is expected to rise temporarily, and there may be cases where internet access becomes unstable or difficult to connect.

Connection speed tends to decrease significantly particularly during the morning hours of the day on which updates are released. However, this drop in connection speed is temporary, so please wait for a while and try again at a later time.
