There is another thing I forgot to mention,
Suppose you don't restrict your traffic, and you have 256 httpd
connection,(default for apache).
So for each user, you assign (theoretically) 2048Kbps/256 = 8 Kbps.
Practically it will be still less :(. So that will slow down the whole
update system of fedora.

This is exactly why we had to limit our connection. :(
