    1. When are the limits lifted for Eastern Standard Time?
    2. What percentage is it throttled to?  I just did a site that was 10 MB and it took 4 hours.
    3. If a job is running during business hours (throttled) and then it bleeds into the non business hours will the migrations automatically begin copying quicker?

    Hi Dan,

    I'm happy to answer your questions copied below:

    1. When are the limits lifted for Eastern Standard Time?

      Business hours are from 9 to 5. Consider that normal throttling is still possible outside of business hours. Microsoft has implemented stricter throttling to help with the increase of activity in the cloud due to the current situation.

    2. What percentage is it throttled to?  I just did a site that was 10 MB and it took 4 hours.

      We do not have a percentage, Microsoft uses an algorithm that considers many factors for throttling. You should get warnings and/or errors if your migration is affected by heavy throttling. In your case, 4 hours for such a small site does not seem normal. I added this information to a ticket you opened with our technical support team. They will get back to you as soon as possible.

    3. If a job is running during business hours (throttled) and then it bleeds into the non business hours will the migrations automatically begin copying quicker?

      I doubt it will be a noticeable difference right away. It depends on how Microsoft's algorithm handles your connection. It is likely that throttling will get lifted as usage becomes lower on the tenant and on the servers. The app follows all the guidelines to get throttled as less as possible.
