I am not aware of this possibility using GPO.

You will have to use 3rd party software like NetLimiter (not free).

Why exactly do you need to limit the bandwidth?

There are many solutions for various kind of issues that doesn't need to limit RDP the way you'd like to.

You can e.g. allow RDP only for specific users, you can limit the number of connections, you can disable some operations that can slow down the connection/computer (transferring files, printing).

Just go to:
Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Remote Desktop Services – Remote Desktop Session Host – Connections

Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Remote Desktop Services – Remote Desktop Session Host – Device and Resource Redirection - Do not allow clipboard redirection

Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Remote Desktop Services – Remote Desktop Session Host – Printer Redirection - Do not allow printer redirection

Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Remote Desktop Services – Remote Desktop Session Host – Remote Session Enviroment

Thank you
