Abstract

Concurrent downloads accelerate information access speed for individual web users. The speed-up comes from multiple connections launched for one subject download, which leads to unfairness at user level. In this paper, we study the impact of concurrent downloads on the network. Particularly, we investigate the fairness between users who employ different downloading concurrency. We also discuss how concurrent downloads affect the transient behavior of the network.
