With all Internet Cafes I recommend setting up a Proxy Server. A proxy server takes all requests from the client servers and downloads the content to a local cache. This helps a lot with the downloads because if one person has already visited the sight it is saved so that it does not need to download the next time some one wants to visit. The other thing you can do with a proxy is content filtering. This allows you to block out unwanted stuff such as porn.

Now you can either get an an appliance or if you don't have much cash then there are some free Linux versions such as SQUID which will help you. The problem with both is you will need help configuring them and with appliances you might get some help from the company selling it...

Last you can control the bandwidth with throttling. You can use hardware or software for this too. Some of the proxy servers may come with this built in.

I hope this helps.
