It is well-known that the TCP congestion control algorithm has been remarkably successful in improving the current TCP/IP function better and efficiently. However, it can perform poorly in networks with high Bandwidth Delay Product (BDP) paths. This paper presents modification to a congestion control algorithm that may help the TCP better utilize the bandwidth provided by huge bandwidth long delay links. It also presents results to show a comparison of the original algorithm.
