Do you want to restrict your users to a maximum bandwidth, guarantee them a minimum bandwidth or both? If restricting your users to a maximum bandwidth, do you want to drop their overspeed traffic or meter it? Also for managing user maximum bandwidths, do you want to allow bandwidth bursting? For the prior, is your concern about user bandwidth to the Internet, from the Internet or both?
As Marwan's post shows, you can configure one CBWFQ class per user, up to the class limit of CBWFQ. If you desire to control bandwidth both to and fromt the Internet, you'll need two active policies. Perhaps either in and out on the same interface, or a policy on mutiple interfaces (e.g. LAN and WAN facing).
You can well regulate a user's bandwidth outbound, and control the bandwidth the user actually obtains inbound, but it's very difficult to control actual inbound bandwidth link utilization unless you also control both sides of a link.
For instance, if you have 1 Mbps, and restrict 10 users to 100 Kbps each, doesn't always guarantee each user can obtain their 100 Kbps inbound if you don't control the link's other side. You can, though, insure, each user will never obtain more than 100 Kbps.
