    For this task

    Put ur webserver behind squid proxy and create delay pools for them

    and from Iptables use this so nobody will try to cheat and use a proxy server other than ours. Public proxies usually run on 3128 and 8080 port

    must also make sure that nobody will try to cheat and connect to the internet directly

    Put all this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

    You can use various things to control bandwidth. Iptables itself can be used to throttle bandwidth. Checkout the following:
