If you don't restrict the capacity that Tor is supposed to use by setting 
options like "BandwidthRate" etc. in torrc, your relay will simply use all the 
bandwidth that is availible. So Tor will automatically push your router or 
your internet connection's capacity to their upper limits. That is, if you 
have less bandwidth availible than a single relay will even be assigned by the 
Tor network, of course. There are limits for that as well.
