    The tool is fine, easy to setup, but it can only block traffic, not limit.

    There's no easy way to see and I have found no way to limit bandwidth. this is the core feature of NetLimiter so I cannot consider this as an alternative at all.

      It lacks almost all of the features NetLimiter has - it is NOT an alternative in any way.
