Hey.. Since you're the ISP.. May I ask you a question?
Say I'm with ISP X, and I'm subscribed to their 384/128k
They say it's best effort. I want to know, how do they Cap the connection
to the said 384k.
What sort of trafficshaping etc do they do? TCP Window shaping?
Packet dropping?? ACKs??
My ISP does the traffic shaping on the ATM side of the DSL. So it's at the
cell level below IP. ATM is considerably more flexible in this regard.
