Re: A TCP Replacement protocol 6000 times faster than DSL?

How fast is DSL? I think mine is 64k min, so 6000x64k=384Mb .. hmm, I can 
transfer files currently via Gig for faster than that. 

But anyway, yeah they've done a bunch of benchmarks with stuff like this.

Basically you hack the TCP protocol stack at either end and it flows faster, the 
downside is you might break a whole bunch of things by doing so and you need to 
change the whole worlds' tcp stacks if you want to roll this out.
