Throttle

Merely proxies connections to a single server, and throttles the connection to a given speed in KB/s. This is useful for testing web sites and other network based applications for which latency and connection speed can affect the functioning or presentation of the program to the user.

I don't go to any lengths to ensure the speed is accurate, nor that asking for 500KB/s will get you 500KB/s, but I do guarantee if you ask to throttle it at X KB/s then you will not get faster than X KB/s.

Here is the --help output:
