If I am understanding BBR correctly, that is working in the sender to receiver direction.  In Dave's test running TCP BBR & TCP CUBIC with a single queue AQM, where CUBIC gets crushed.  Silly question, but the single queue AQM was also operating in the in sender to receiver direction for this test, yes?
