BITS for Linux

I want to download updates in the background. Does Linux have the equivalent of WIN32 BITS? BITS is a Background Intelligent Transfer Service used for downloading Windows updates in spare, low priority bandwidth.

When I do an automatic daily update yum saturates my bandwidth for a couple of minutes which makes browsing really slow. Is there a way of throttling the yum download with Linux? Thanks.

    … are you doing your automatic daily update while you're browsing? Why not run it while you're asleep?
