Somehow, I > doubt you will be able to. Internet/2 is not interesting because it has big pipes; the public Internet has much bigger pipes and more of them. I/2 is interesting only because it has fewer users -- by two or three orders of magnitude -- and most/all of these users are connected by FastE or better. However, there is no need to waste funding buying uber-fast routers or GigE links around the globe just to learn how to tune stacks or apps. If high-speed TCP research is what you're doing, rig up a latency generator in your laboratory and do your tests that way, just like the TCPSAT folks. Spending millions of (probably taxpayer) dollars to win a meaningless record is unethical, IMHO.
