cFos Traffic Shaping reduces delays during data transfer and allows you to
surf the Internet up to three times faster. So you can use the full bandwidth
of your connection!
During TCP/IP transfer, a certain amount of data needs to be confirmed upon
reception before more can be sent. Stalling data confirmation results in
delays and transfer-rate slowdowns, thus forcing the sender to wait.
Especially for DSL and cable, it is possible to slow a download to a
crawl by choking the upstream channel (which has the smaller bandwidth anyway)
with an upload. This is because in such a scenario there is not enough
upstream bandwidth left for data confirmation.
