Mass disable of QUIC Protocol

I work for a school I need to disable QUIC in Chrome on all of our computer.  It's causing all sorts of issues when I do a Google search in Chrome, searching Google in IE, Edge, and Firefox work normally.  I downloaded the latest .adm templates and setup a GPO to push this setting out.  While I can see the computers are getting the policy by doing a gpresult /h, if I  open up Chrome and go to chrome://flags and scroll down to Experimental QUIC protocol  It's still set to Default, not disable.  Is there another setting I have to set to get this to work?  What am I missing?  I've checked this on 2 computers and am getting the same result.  Thanks

Hello Dave,

Thanks for posting on the Google Chrome Help Forum.

I appreciate your efforts in trying to fix the issue. Could you please let me know if you're an IT administrator? If yes, I believe you can configure these through your Group Policy settings.

We don't provide support for Group Policy on this forum but if you're a Google for Work customer, you can contact your account manager or call us / email us using the "contact us" button at the top of the help center article that I linked earlier to.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Diana

Keep me posed.

It's setup in the GPO and I confirmed the computer is getting the policy by running gpresult /h.  But, like I said above, when I actually go into Chrome and go to Chrome://flags, the setting is still set at default, not disabled.

Hello Dave,

Did you manage to disable the QUIC through GPO. I did try as you mention still it shows as default. we are seeing big issue on our bandwidth just one download from google drive consumes all our 100Mbs ISP line.

My answer is, maybe.  I have the setting being pushed in three school districts and the results are mixed.  One district says everything is good, another says it's mostly good but still intermittent issues, haven't heard from the 3rd.  Another district in the area that I don't support pushed it as well and they're saying it's intermittent as well.  I've given up on it though.  I'll push it if they ask but, as you can above, Google won't support the GPO templates they make so, there's not much more I can do.  We're telling staff if it's a huge issue to use another browser as it works 100% in IE, Edge, and Firefox.
