we have plenty of buffer and hence that limit setting has never raised hand. but content setting is given an importance here.

    the problem with limits of ANY kind is that once set, someone then has to be dedicated to raising the limits for selected individuals, and then raise them higher, then raise them for other persons, then raise them ... pretty soon it is a full time job just raising the limits. Unless the company president sets the limits and ENFORCES them, any sort or restriction like this is only causing work. That's my 2 cents worth. Steve

    I've never seen any such limits but they'd certainly be valuable if you could make them work. The better option is to limit specific protocols/sites through content filtering and employee monitoring.

    But still in a big environment where we feel to ristrict users from accesing web sites, there it can be a wise move to restrict user to daily download limit.
