You demonstrated that it's about which TCP algorithm they use, probably.

They all respond very differently to increase in RTT vs loss.


Generally the Internet doesn't need more buffers, it needs less. If you 
have only FIFO available, configure it to tail-drop at 10ms or so, to help 
your customers with what they really care about, interactive performance.

I debloat my 1000/1000 with bidir 900/900 FQ_CODEL to avoid my downloads 
affecting my interactive performance.
