Windows Updates are served through Akamai, so it could be that your ISP's local cache is offline and you are pulling updates from a remote cache.

Also, make sure you are using your ISP's DNS servers, which will ensure that you also download from the closest cache.

It looked like either snap's or some other cache inbetween dropped out - after a few machines had got thier updates, the same updates seemed to come down at their normal speed (a MB a sec or so). Except for office updates. I'm blaming a cache reset :P
