Does Microsoft throttle bandwidth on Windows Updates? (Technology)

I just had to refresh Windows 8.1 to factory default. I was checking for updates and got about 5 updates which installed then I checked again and got about 40 to Install which I think was just less than 1gb which they did install. I then checked for more updates and the progress bar is just constantly checking now for the last few hours :-think

My Onedrive is still showing as Skydrive :-(

Do Microsoft look at how much gb updates you have downloaded and then limit you to spread it out over a few days or something?

Normally If I do a full refresh reinstall I just keep update checking to automatic and not do it manually. Updates will show up in time, it can take a few days to get back up straight.
