And if you're wondering, how come it's possible that 10 x application connections can retrieve 10 x more than a single application connection - this is why I listed the Bandwidth Delay Product as #2 in the list. If you have too small TCP buffer sizes for your network latency (delay) and link max theoretical throughput (bandwidth) then this buffer size ends up throttling your TCP connection throughput. The reason - TCP is a reliable protocol, thus a TCP packet can not be discarded from the TCP send buffer before an ACK has arrived for at least that packet sequence number (or higher). So, the higher the network latency (time to get ACK) and the lower the TCP buffer size, the lower your connection's throughput will be throttled to.
With 10 x connections however, each connection have their own TCP send/receive buffers, thus the aggregate throughput for all the connections is 10 x higher.
