This paper is a digest of [1], an extensive survey
discussing the merits of over 300 techniques for reducing Internet
latency. It gives a broad overview of the causes, solutions, and
trade-offs involved in reducing latency in the Internet. The
overview covers key sources of delays and proposed solutions:
due to the structural arrangement of the network, how network
end-points interact, along the end-to-end path, related to link
capacities, within end-hosts, and those that address multiple
sources. Trade-offs are discussed in terms of the latency reduction
different techniques provide versus their deployability
