Likewise, why was it never an issue before and why does it only affect certain types of traffic from certain CDNs?

How come we have never seen this problem? We have a ton of DSL and many 
of those are slow, but no customer complaints about overloaded lines 
from CDN networks. 

Could it be that the way you throttle the bandwidth is defect? It is 
easy to blame the other guy but could it be that you are doing it wrong?
