I have done the same with PF and AltQ for the past few years. It is so
effective on my 1536/384 ADSL that I now have the opposite problem: a
large download will lag both downloads and uploads. Sadly, this is a
more difficult issue to tackle without full access to hardware at both
ends of the slow link.
