Metered connection: If you have a limited data plan and want more control over data usage, make your connection a metered network. Some apps might work differently to reduce data usage when you’re connected to this network.

The metered connection also pauses the OneDrive sync to limit the data usage. It helps to stop the windows update to continue. If you still want to enable the usage of data for particular applications, you can choose to do so for example by resuming the OneDrive or updating the windows.
