What is TCP Acceleration?

I know I can suspend "Web Acceleration" and sometimes that helps .

 

But what about "TCP Acceleration" ?

 

I ask this question because sometimes it seems like my connection gets 'stuck' and is sluggish when requesting new web sites. When it does,  if I start a testmy speedtest on another terminal, my connection becomes unstuck for a while. It's almost as if there is a cache or buffer of some sort waiting to be filled before the service responds and goes out and grabs the web site information.

 

Note: This is not an issue that is causing me anything other than mild curiosity.
