Not at all surprising

Looking at data usage on our firewall/filtering device, Microsoft's servers now top the chart for data usage every day - more so than Youtube even (we're a group of schools).

Windows 10, Office 365, etc... are incredibly noisy with their data usage. You just have to look at the massive number of IP address ranges and domains they recommend unblocking when you use Office 365 to realise how much data usage there will be.
