QOS Quality of Service over Internet by user

Our company would like to implement QOS Quality of Service over Internet and would like to give more bandwidth/speed and internet connections user experience priority to our VIP user. We are planning to implement proxy or internet gateway between our internal network and the internet.
We understanding that although we could control our outgoing internet traffic QOS but it is basically impractical or impossible to control the incoming internet traffic. My question is whether implementing QOS over internet based on users (or group of users) is feasible or not. If it is feasible how is this done or the mechanism behind it.
Highly appreciate your professional advice and comment in advance.

NextGen firewalls can manage that and limit the bandwidth by a given user. I would look at Palo Alto, Checkpoint, SourceFire. You can base your rules off of AD and control traffic that way.

Spartan is absolutely correct. I deploy a lot of Palo Altos and do this exact thing. You can also QoS based on application, a.d. groups and so on.

I often set a QoS on YouTube to limit its bandwidth consumption.
