I was just wondering what is meant by "Fairness" with respect to 
congestion control algorithms. I can see that simply having congestion 
control is more "fair" in relation to the use of the network by many 
users, but I don't really know how to compare the fairness of two 
different congestion control algorithms. Any guidance would be greatly 
appreciated.
