Please find mail reply from our technical team :

It depends on many factors. 18h00 to 00h00 is the peak time where the most clients connect to the Internet and hence more people will have to share the bandwidth. MyT/ADSL are best effort services. The site where the distro is located can also be throttling your connection to avoid excessive bandwidth usage and overwhelming the servers.

Interesting, response from your ISP, dnf update will look for you near mirror to do and update therefore your connection may not be to Fedora manageable servers which make too difficult to answer your particular question. Because of the many mirrors that carried Fedora updates, we do not need to do any bandwidth management.
