Re: Not much improvement over docsis 2.0

There's not really much of an issue in TCP/IP
with respect to throttled upload speeds impairing
download speeds to due the need for ACKs from
the receiver. In older TCP/IP implementations
this was indeed the case but modern mechanisms
like cumulative and selective ACKs (in which
you send a single ACK indicating the receipt
of a large window of packets) have dramatically
reduced the impact.
