Set your default route to the low bandwidth line , and pick off the traffic you want to send to the higher bandwidth line.
Then in between the high bandwidth modem and the ethernet of the MT box put something to filter out any "clever" p2p on port80 etc . Even if its encrypted it won;t matter much.
