Yes, you can use any RADIUS attributes with Freeside.  Setup RADIUS 
groups, assign attributes to those groups (Configuration -> Services -> 
RADIUS -> RADIUS groups), and then put your service definitions in the 
appropriate groups (Configuration -> Services -> Service definitions).

I would suggest reading up on RADIUS and experimenting with the RADIUS

If you're using RADIUS attributes, you set this up as per above, you 
don't use "speed_up" and "speed_down" for this.

Hope that helps and the software can be useful for you!
