In this paper, we survey the fairness issues in the congestion control mechanisms of TCP, which is one of most important service aspects in the current and future Internet. We first summarize the problems from a perspective of the fair service among connections. Several solution methods are next surveyed. Those are modifications of TCP congestion control mechanism and router support for achieving the fair service among TCP connections. We finally investigate the fair share of resources at endhosts.
