Disclaimer before anyone asks: Yes, I know this is a Windows Autopilot question and not specific to Intune but I cannot find any Autopilot tags.

Hi folks

Are there any Microsoft Documents (I can't find any) that detail what the minimum broadband/network requirements (for speed - download and upload) are for the Windows Autopilot service. I'm just trying to work out what the bottom line speed is for this Autopilot service, to ensure a good experience is met when provisioning.

We've provisioned in the early days a couple of years ago over 3G/4G on a train going into London but that was before we layered on a lot of config and apps since. I just want to find out if there are any documents out there or a general community consensus that the minimum speed before it starts to fall apart is x.

Thanks

    I literally just submitted the form to get an Autopilot tag added.

    As for recommended bandwidth, there's no such thing as it completely depends on what you are deploying and what your expectations are. The former is variable, and the latter is subjective.

    Windows Autopilot depends on a variety of internet-based services. Access to these services must be provided for Autopilot to function properly. You can refer the following link for each of these services and their specific requirements, but it doesn’t list the minimum broadband of autopilot. Just as Jason said, it depends on what you are deploying and what your expectations are.
