If you set all remote clients for going ro Liveupdate internet servers  - it will take some of the available bandwith yes. As mentioned by above recommendation  a Group update provided will help minimize the load of the updates traffic in the network - as only the GUP will download the definitions from SEPM and the provide these to the clients in the branch.

Agree with above comment, GUP is a good solution to sort out the bandwidth issue.
