I am tired of hearing about Active Queue Management research when I can easily create 400ms latency here and there using only a couple of regular TCP connections.
A 400ms queue does not need to be "actively managed", it just needs to be made smaller. No queue should be longer than 100ms, end of. I am really not interested in having super throughput from outer space while Akamai and Google and whoever else are installing server farms on every single continent to give super low latency... instantly destroyed as soon as I download some software update.
I am sure there is fascinating research and fine-tuning to be done in the 10-100 milliseconds range but please, put some effort on fixing the most blatant problems first?
