No, unfortunately your ISP gives you bandwidth, not FreeBSD.
You can give yourself the illusion of guarenteed bandwidth using HFSC and pf
altq, but at 500% of max bandwidth it is nothing more then an illusion.
That's aside from the fact that HFSC only allows 75% of capacity to be
designated as 'realtime'.
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
