Most of TCP schemes in wireless networks assume that the bandwidth of the bottleneck link remains constant over time. However, in wireless cellular networks, to effectively manage the limited resources, the bandwidth is controlled based on radio condition over time. Such varying bandwidth can cause the networks congestion or underutilization. In this letter, we propose a new window control algorithm to improve TCP performance in wireless cellular networks with variable bandwidth. Simulation results illustrate that our proposal improves the performance of TCP in terms of fairness and link utilization
