You need the support of QoS for this, User end Layer 2, Internet Edge should be Layer 3, depends on the requirement you cna use Layer 3 switch or Router ( i prefer router since you required NAT here ).  -

Hello,

 

I think you will have to set L3 sub interfaces where you will apply the rate limit.

 

Or you can try to set class-map which match your 3 vlans then a policy map where you set up a shaper and apply this service-policy into the interface connected to your ISP.
