What you are asking for is Quota management, not bandwidth management.

Squid does not do quotas easily yet.

Delay pools, are designed to delay things. As in set per-second
bandwidth rates to distinct groups (aka pools) of requests.

If you wish to limit each user to a connection speed of 216bps over the
entire day. Or 432bps over half the day. That is what delay pools can
help with.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.3
