I would like to understand how BBR interacts with a window-fully-open classic TCP session and FIFO induced delay that is in steady-state before the BBR session starts.

So let's say I have 100ms of lightspeed-in-fiber RTT, and I am then running a file transfer with some other TCP algorithm which is sitting there, window fully open, creating an additional 100ms of stupid-router-FIFO-buffering delay.

So new BBR TCP session comes along, sees 200ms of RTT, and starts sending. I guess the classic TCP algorithm still keeps its window fully open, and doesn't care that RTT now increased to 210ms by the BBR flow packets.

Now what? BBR flow sees increased latency, and backs off, right? So how much of the bandwidth will each flow get? How do these interact?
