You have the ability to 'throttle' down the deployment speed through the use of the 'Copy Speed' setting in the Patch Deployment Template.
At full speed (6), the patch copy process is performed similar to a network copy, limited only by the network bandwidth. At lower speeds, a certain number of packets are pushed, then a delay is introduced, then more packets are pushed, then another delay. The more you throttle back the copy speed, the fewer packets get pushed, and the longer the delay in between each push.
Each increment is about 20 milliseconds of delay, it goes from 1 to 6 so the max would be a 1/10 second delay
More information on Deployment Template can be found in the help files.
