Connection types allowed for updates

The types of connections that are allowed to use for OS updates. OS updates potentially put heavy strain on the connection due to their size and may incur additional cost. Therefore, they are by default not enabled for connection types that are considered expensive, which include WiMax, Bluetooth and Cellular at the moment.

The recognised connection type identifiers are "ethernet", "wifi", "wimax", "bluetooth" and "cellular".
