SubjectRe: Bandwidth 'depredation' revisited
When you start a big download, you actually request a server to send as 
much data as possible to you. Quickly, the packet queues on your ISP's
side gets filled up. If these queues are big (can hold many packets) you
will see a rather high latency when trying to retrieve replys, since any
pakcets (incl. ACK) will need first to enter the queue, and wait for
their turn to be send to you.

The best solution would be to install some sort of traffic shaping on
the remove side (you ISP), but that is often(/always) not a possible
solution.

The second best solution is to simple drop packets comming in too
quickly from the interface. By this, the sending machine will slow down
transmission. The idea is to keep the queues at you ISP empty.

To do this you can use ingress scheduler.

Something like:
tc qdisc add dev eth0 handle ffff: ingress
tc filter add dev etc0 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 50 u32 \
match ip src 0.0.0.0/0 police \
rate 232kbit burst 10k drop flowid :1

The downside is, that this actually decreases the maximum download
speed, but you can really feel the difference.

IIRC, All this was explained in the Advanced-Routing howto.
There is an example in it, which sets the ingress scheduler up. You can
also take a look at the "wonder shaper" at http://lartc.org/wondershaper/.
