Enables quick retry, which detects slow forward throughput while fetching an object, and attempts a different forward connection path to avoid congestion. By default, connections under 5 mbps trigger this behavior. When the transfer rate drops below this rate during a connection attempt, quick retry is enabled and a different forward connection path is used. Contact Akamai Professional Services to override this threshold.

Note that there are certain limitations to how you can use this behavior. See the Object Delivery documentation for more information.
