1. A system for allowing a user to dynamically control an amount of bandwidth available to the user in a network, the system comprising:

  • a first network interface for communicating over a communication link with a user device during a network session;

    a second network interface for communicating with one or more computer networks;

    a data storage system including an indication of a network communication bandwidth associated with the user device and selected by the user; and

    a processor configured to calculate a delay period associated with a received packet based on the network communication bandwidth associated with the user, and the processor further configured to delay transmission of the packet based on the delay period to prevent the user device from achieving a bandwidth greater than the network communication bandwidth associated with the user device and selected by the user.
