I have Apache server 2.2.21 on my OSX Lion 10.7.2 64 bit. is there a way to control to download speed?

I'm testing it locally and every download happens very quick.

is there a way to control the download speed to make it slower so it will feel like I'm downloading the files from a slow server?

Perhaps you can use mod_bandwidth for this?
