Well you have 2 options for receiving Windows 10

One is downloading direst from the Microsoft server. The other uses a P2P peer network. In other words the MS server doesn't get hit. It uses PC out on the internet that the anniversary update and it downloads bits and pieces at a time (Just like torrents). If you stop it will pick up where it left off.
