Windows 7: Restricting a program's network usage?

Restricting a program's network usage?

Is it possible to restrict a program's network usage, speed wise? Steam is hogging all my bandwidth with game downloading and I'd like to cap it if possible so the rest of my internet doesn't lag.

Download and install Netlimiter. You will be able to control how much bandwidth the program uses then.
