    Hi all,

    I'm curious if anyone has had any experience dealing with with Bufferbloat in networks:

    Bufferbloat - Wikipedia

    I'm trying to get an idea how much of a problem this still presents today. It seems to me that the main situation where bufferbloat would come into play is when maxing out a connection and packets start to fill up the buffers waiting to be transmitted. Does bufferbloat also present a potential problem in normal use situations where a network connection may not be maxed out?

    Thanks in advance.
