Sure, but you'll use probably almost every bit you've payed for!

I'm still not sure how this traffic goes around, because eg., if you
receive something through a satelite, then it would only make sense if
it were controlled earlier to the same speed too. Otherwise you should
have this dropping on your HTB (of course you could use big buffers,
but anyway...), instead of STM, but resending could be similar.

But, if you have full control on your side, it looks like a kind of
realtime traffic, and then HFSC should be more appropriate for this
(but I only 'heard' about this).

Then good news: read the code! There is really as little English as
