There is no way to control the bandwidth on a user basis in IIS.
If you want this feature, you will have to install an alternate FTP server.
This one should meet your requirements: www.xlightftpd.com

Bandwidth throttling limits the bandwidth that is used by static HTML files only.
You can set it at the server level or for each individual web site.
There is no way to throttle FTP in IIS6 and certainly not on a user basis.

I guess you can play with QoS on the firewall but that will apply for the FTP protocol and not on a user basis.

In IIS Manager, right click Web Sites
Select Properties
Go to the Performance tab
Check 'Limit the network bandwidth ...'

This setting is also available for individual sites.
