First you can give linphone constraints bandwidth: use the connection type 
field in the property box, above the codec list. When set to 56k modem, the 
speex codec will automatically be configured to run at 8kbit/s.
Second, to convert this codec bitrate to an IP bandwidth, you need to take in 
accound IP/UDP/RTP encapsulation : 
rtp has a header of 12 bytes
udp is 8 - not sure
ip is around 40
Speex packets are emitted every 20 ms.
You 've got all the parameters of the problem now.
