Abstract

As broadband speeds increase, latency is becoming a bottleneck for many applications-especially for Web downloads. Latency affects many aspects of Web page load time, from DNS lookups to the time to complete a three-way TCP handshake; it also contributes 10 the time it takes to transfer the Web objects for a page. Previ- 0US work has shown that much of this latency can occur in the last 12]. Although some performance bottlenecks can be mitigated 'ncreasing downstream throughput (e.g., by purchasing a higher rvicc plan), in many cases, latency introduces performance bottlenecks. particularly for connections with higher throughput.
