Steamwatch is Ok. I prefer to use Frey's Steam filter myself as sometimes steamwatch can fail.

But providing steamwatch is working correctly it will stop steam from grabbing game data from any other servers than the ISP you set it to, making the data unmetered. You only ever need to run one steam filter program at once.

By checking this page (link) you can see if the content you want is hosted by the servers you are using.

Get his login details login on your computer and download them there. Then either use the built in back up feature or simply copy the game files across to his pc.
