Jim’s 8-minute video demonstrates latency in his home connection with and without a competing file upload. As he says, it is a fantastic, tangible way to see this problem and to realize that it’s already affecting you on a daily basis. The coolest part of the video is when he intentionally throttles his broadband router to 70% bandwidth and he shows a HUGE improvement in perceived performance.

I finally published the #bufferbloat demonstration videos I’ve been working on. I expect it will help make the problem more concrete to those of you who have heard of bufferbloat, and wondered what it does. You can find them in my blog.
