  1. BBR, the new kid on the TCP block — Geoff examines the several optimized variants of TCP, including Google’s delay-controlled TCP flow control algorithm, called BBR.
  2. Look up! — Inspired by a presentation given by Jon Brewer at NZNOG, Geoff takes a detailed look at the potential of new satellite Internet projects that promise to offer high-speed, low-cost Internet services to rival fibre.
  3. The Root of the DNS — Learn how the DNS and root servers function, and how they can be improved.
