    Summary
    In this paper we propose a simple powerful method to increase communication performance in large networks such as the Internet. Our approach is based on the usage multiple disjunct paths for the transmitting data from one node to another one. The method exploits the dense connectivity of the Internet by making use of the different routes engaged in communications originating from different nodes to one target nodes. We show that depending on the bandwidth offered and the amount of data to be transfered, a linear speedup can be achieved. An experimentalimpl ementation of the method within the WOS framework confirms the theoretical analysis of the method.
