There are a lot of possibilities related to buffer bloat and other network
performance issues. For example, at Comcast where I work, I have come to
suspect that buffer bloat was behind the degradation of VoIP (e.g. Vonage)
while customers were using BitTorrent (which led the company down a bad
path to try to fix it but that¹s a long story).
