I'm running a Debian server and was wondering if there are good resources out there, to which you can point me, where I can read about traffic limitations.

I have couple users sharing one server. Each month we only get lets say 1 TB of bandwidth (in and out). Therefore I need to split the bandwidth up equally.

I've read about iptables, tc, hbt, but can't seem to find a really good tutorial.
