    1. there is no such a way to restrict the speed of internet.

      Delete
    2. Technically you can. There`s something called QoS setting. Although it applies to kinds of data traffic ( voice/video/data ) etc , if you google around there should be ways to restrict based on MAC address as well.
      I`m not sure if your router would support it , but Googling should give you the correct answer.

I have been trying for a broad band connection but while getting connection i was being denied for i was not having any local address proof though i could have provided my company alloted address. My address proof all are of Gujarat state while i have applied for connection in rajasthan. Is it that bsnl dont provide any connection to people from other states.
