If there is a simple affordable solution, say Open/DD-WRT distro based
bridge that all you do is configure your up/down bandwidth and it applies
Codel/fq-Codel/Cake, then all you need to do is drive up awareness. A good
channel for awareness would be getting in contact with popular Twitch or
YouTube gaming streamers. But I wouldn't put much effort into driving up
awareness until there is a device that people can easily acquire, use, and
afford. At first I was thinking of telling people to use *-WRT supporting
routers, but changing the firmware on your router requires too much
research, and many people care about bleeding edge features. You need
something that works in tangent with whatever they are using.
