In this paper we present an idea to handle big data in a better way. We consider Multipath TCP (MPTCP) to use all available paths simultaneously. MPTCP is a tailored form of TCP which aspire to improve throughput by sharing available resources smartly and fairly. The key concentration of this paper is to analyze the benefit of MPTCP over single path TCP for bandwidth and time sensitive applications as well as big data application. Our simulation shows that MPTCP can higher goodput by bandwidth aggregation, Couple Congestion Control(CCC) provide better throughput without being unfair to other legacy TCP flows and also portray that large receive buffer causes performance enhancement for relatively large RTT link. As a result, MPTCP can be a enormous addition in contrast with single path TCP in dealing with big data application.
