FreeBSD Traffic Shaping

I am trying to limit the bandwidth available to some connections and  
I'm not sure FreeBSD can handle this. Maybe some of you can help.  
Here's what I need to have exactly.

No matter what the number of connections, each connection should have  
at most/least 50kbps guaranteed outbound on port 80.

I've tried dummynet but it doesn't do what I need because if I define  
a pipe with 1mbps and if I have 1000 connections, each connection will  
have less than 50kbps.

Any way to do this in FreeBSD ?
