Yup.  Be aware though that the shaping you do is OUTBOUND.
This is fine for your uplink, it's what you want.

It won't solve all potential problems with your downlink - 
the fact that you shape before things get to the end station
is useful, but if the stream isn't using TCP it won't stop
your downlink from getting hammered.
