[en] The legacy bandwidth discovery phase of TCP spends an unnecessary number of RTTs for reaching the fair share of the network. In this article we introduce a simple modification at the receiver that splits the TCP ACKs in a controlled manner. This mechanism allows to fast ramp-up the TCP congestion window. Our experiments performed in a real testbed show benefits not only in the increased data throughput but also in a non-congested uplink (Acknowledgement) path in an 802.11 access.
