Which router for T1 line?

Hello Experts!

I'm looking into getting a new T1 line for my office, and the phone company offers a "managed solution" for $95/month (on top of the $350 for the T1), but I think that I would like to buy my own router and manage it myself.

Trouble is, I don't really know what to get...could someone recommend a router that will do the job?

Right now the network is pretty simple (one subnet) but in the future I will probably have three VLANs controlled by switch(es), what I may want to do is "throttle" internet bandwith on a per VLAN basis (if that is even possible).

What do you recommend?

Cisco is always a good choice... So a Cisco 1721 w/ a WIC-1DSU-T1 would be a good option.

However if you want to go a little cheaper you can go for the Adtran Netvanta 3200 w/ T1 NIM.

The Adtrans can do a lot, however they are still a little skimpy on documentation and some of the more "advanced" configs take a quick call to their tech support.
