Prevent a download to saturate all bandwidth on Linux

In Linux, a single download can use all available bandwidth, so that any other connection can't be started. (e.g. if I am downloading updates, I can't surf the web at the same time)

"I've personally never tried any applications for bandwidth throttling, but if you'd like a good place to see some applications for Linux, check out the ""external links"" section of the Bandwidth throttling Wikipedia entry.

Amongst the mentioned solutions, I've heard about trickle and a Squid based implementation (like in the Bandwidth Limiting HOWTO)."
