I would use squid. It is a proxy server that uses "delay pools" to controll your bandwidth. It will also help by removing access to sites you might not want your people to waste resources with, ie. facebook myspace etc.... It will also locally cache sites that are commonly used.

here are a couple of articles that will help you out
