[Android ]real time internet bandwidth management app for individual apps like netlimiter 3

Hi everyone,
For eternity I am searching for an app which can limit the bandwidth for individual app like netlimiter 3 and netbalancer does for windows

For example if I am having a download speed of 50KBps, I would like what'sapp to use use only 5 Kbps, facebook to 20 ,UC browser to remaining 25KBps,

Please don't suggest me the apps which limit the data after a predefined limit like 3g watchdog and data traffic monitor ,what I want is an app which can limit the "Speed " each app gobbles (if it's easier explanation )

Please tell me if any app of this sort is there, and whether it's not possible
:p
Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks buddy. I also don't know about this. I never thought of this on windows and on android. But I will definitely search for this.
I would definitely suggest you to ask in XDA also. If app is not available, then someone will create it.
I understand what you want. I will search it. But if you find it please tell me also. Some new question. thanks.
:)

It was in rumor before lollipop released.

Well, I don't think there's still and even if there was then you will need root permission to made this much extreme level of customisation ! I'll be on the look out and will let you know if I came up with anything like this but for now I would say application like this isn't available.

You'll need to root phone and use xposed. Limiting data on app is beyond android stock APIs.

Have rooted phone, using xposed also.
And you have not read the thread properly. Its real time bandwidth management.

For example if I am having a download speed of 50KBps, I would like whatsapp to use use only 5 KBps, facebook to 20KBps, UC browser to remaining 25 KBps

Please don't tell me to check setting on wifi router. It's about max allowed speed given per application in android.
 
Thanks everyone,
@ amit, I heard it too, and was hopeful that it'd get implemented in lollipop but alas...it never happened

And if its helpful ,I have root permissions and xposed installed, I am not afraid of tinkering with my gadgets :p

BTW ,when I used netlimiter 3 on windows, it created a layer in network adapter settings (a layer above tc /ip layer, or so I think ) so all the data gets through this layer and they were able to manage it from their (that explanation is purely speculation on my part, but I know a protocol is there in network adapter properties )

Such applications can be hugely useful in 2g data as well as for not letting a downloader gobble up all the speed, rendering facebook and browsers unusable in 3G

Thanks everyone for help

Exactly
limiting data on wi fi router is definitely not an option, as it bypass the whole point of discussion
,and I believe that too is available only on high end routers or using some custom roms, nevertheless it doesn't offer "limiting data on the go"
