Apparently I can get Windows 10 after all, without worrying about it using up too much data via auto updates

I kept hearing that with Windows 10 there is no way to prevent automatic updates from happening whenever they become available, causing me to think I had to stick with my windows 7 to prevent too much data loss. (I have only 10gb allowance per month).. However, I found this article which describes a way I can set Windows 10 so that downloads will not automatically occur on connections I choose to list as "metered". 

But wondering if I am reading this correctly and can really get Windows 10 without having to worry about excessive data usage/going over my allowance?:

(This is a separate issue from the initial download, which I understand uses up 3gb of data--so I could make sure to only do that initial download during the LNFZ.)
