On mirror.chpc.utah.edu, I push about 250 gig every day, with spikes up to 
about 400. That is all traffic for my box, which is an official CentOS 
mirror and an unofficial Fedora mirror.

Based on my numbers, you would want to look at some sort of bandwidth 
throttling. mod_bandwidth (for Apache) looks interesting.
