52762907 story Taking Google's QUIC For a Test Drive 141 Posted by Soulskill on Friday November 08, 2013 @01:47PM from the hopefully-in-one-of-google's-automated-cars dept. agizis writes "Google presented their new QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) protocol to the IETF yesterday as a future replacement for TCP. It was discussed here when it was originally announced, but now there's real working code. How fast is it really? We wanted to know, so we dug in and benchmarked QUIC at different bandwidths, latencies and reliability levels (test code included, of course), and ran our results by the QUIC team."
