A common requirement to improve the end-to-end performance on the Internet is critical because the Internet becomes an infrastructure of our daily life. There have been many research studies to understand characteristics of the inside of the Internet and to try to improve the end-to-end performance with caching technologies in application programs. This paper proposes a new framework to improve the end-to-end performance on the Internet. The approach taken in this paper is to establish an alternative path between end-to-end hosts by the installation of rely hosts at the intermediate. The major advantage for previous caching studies can be easily applicable to all applications on a network path. The paper also describes the results of the experiment which measured a path quality of the intermediate link to select the better alternative path than the original path. This framework can be easily extended to construct a virtual network for the better performance on the Internet. The network provides the better performance for all Internet users
