With the rapid development of information society, the number of information data transmitting in the Internet is growing quickly, so congestion control becomes very important and it is a hot research field on the Internet now. In this paper, the sliding window, reasons and TCP algorithms of congestion control such as slow start, congestion avoidance, fast retransmit and fast recovery are discussed. Different TCP versions about congestion control are studied and analyzed. As a result, improvements on the congestion control algorithm and the research is still an important topic in the study of Internet congestion control.
