Put in a proxy with content filtering to block undesired sites.

Or have a look at OpenDNS solution.

What actually do you have in mind when you say "fair usage per user" ?

Well , i have all bluecoat packet shaping and content filtering appliances in place . I am looking for a solution to ensure  every users have fair access regardless to heavy downloading users .

May be a automatic mechanism to allocate heavy users in to separate category.

Thanks

In Packetshaper you can configure Min and Max bandwidth to be allowed. If you see all traffic coming from your proxy, then it will be difficult to do shaping. So in this scenario, you should look to minimize the bandwidth for sites/categories like Online Sharing, Video Streaming, P2P etc.

If you have user based authentication set up in Bluecoat Proxy, then you can configure Bandwidth Class for them, based of departments/groups defined in AD.
