For financial reasons I need to limit the ammount of data I send down an ethernet wire to my ISP ( in the next door ofice ), If I use more than 64Kb/s I will be moved to a higher tariff. Is there anyway that I can limit the bandwith that a network connection uses?

Hi,

   I guess you're using ISDN, in that case, just configure your
router to use only one B channel and don't use bonding. So if
you ever need more than 64K, you will have to wait. Second option
if to buy just what your need from your ISP, 64K. They will configure your router and their routers for only one B channel.
   If you're using others type of connection, Frame Relay, Fractional T1 ... just order what you need or could afford, in
a 64K at a time. Just tell your ISP that you only want a 64K line
and will only pay for that amount of bandwidth. They will deal
with it.
