Do I need an internet connection to update windows? And if so, how much internet does each update use?

  • "need": No. With that said, unless you have someone provide you with standalone Service Pack(s) and Hotfix(s), connecting to Windows Update via internet is the usual method.
  • Size of Service Pack(s) and hotfix(s) varies.

And I've just ordered all my PC parts. When they arrive and I get my PC setup I'm going to need to do lots of windows updates. I only have 4gb of internet. I know I live out in the country and I don't know If I can get anymore or not. But will this be enough?

  • For Windows 7, it should be fine.
  • No comment for Win8/8.1 since I rarely deal with one.
