best option is to use ipfw to manage outbound traffic, with fair sharing 
of bandwidth (possibly giving ack's higher weight, or specially giving 
lower weight to apache outgoing traffic).

set up bandwidth to something below your operator's declared. like 
450kbit/s or less.

ADSL modems (at least this used by polish telecom) tend to choke when 
upload bandwidth is near max. delays gets even above 1000ms
