Are there any options how do I limit the upload bandwidth used to say 25% or 50% of the full upload bandwidth? While uploading files:

  • in the web-browser,
  • in the email client like outlook,
  • FTP clients etc.

The upload limitation could work either:

  • as a plugin in the web-browser (any plugin for firefox?) for browser uploads,
  • as a system tool.

BitTorrent can do it well (but unfortunatelly not as percent), the best way it is implemented is in WinSCP.

  • I think you could use some kind of proxy server that can limit network bandwith, but not for concrete app or kind of apps. – Sergey Vedernikov Jan 24 '12 at 6:51

You can use the Qos (Quality of Service) in your router to cut down your upload speeds to the speed you choose.

  • Thanks, but my question was about client side solution - how to voluntarily throttle down the data I send. – Tomas Apr 18 '12 at 11:03
