In this document, we introduce Cap Start TCP, an adaptive Slow Start scheme that consistently achieves fast TCP file transfer times regardless of high speed network scenario. Once the TCP session is established, we estimate TCP session path capacity scenario, and tune the transport protocol to deliver fast transfer times. We demonstrate significant transaction performance improvements, of as much as three times faster completion times in transcontinental high speed network experiments for various capacity scenarios.
