Are you referring to bandwidth in general (cpu, io, network ...) or just 
the network ?

Lxc is tied with the cgroup. The cgroup provides some controllers to 
limit the network bandwidth as well as the blkio.
The network bandwidth for a container is hard to setup as far as I can 
see and some experiments to limit the bandwidth wrt the different lxc's 
network configuration maybe helpful. The first step would be to do that 
manually and the second step we can integrate in a couple of 
configuration lines the bandwidth limits for download and upload for the 

Some pointers:
