Windows 10 Mobile looks set to remove cellular download limits from the Store

Microsoft seems to be ready to say "download limits be gone" for its Windows 10 Mobile store allowing us to download whatever we like with a cellular connection.

First reported by the guys at, the latest build, 10149, removed the cellular data cap for downloads from the Store (Beta).

Sure enough, we've fired it up and this does seem to be the case. We had no trouble starting a download of Asphalt 8 from Store (Beta) on our device. Then promptly ending it because some of us still have data allowances to worry about.

For those with unlimited data plans and less access to Wifi though, this will be most welcome. Until it makes it into the release builds we'll leave jumping for joy for now, but we're sure a lot of folks will be happy to see this.


Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
