RTFM. The telnet protocol defines various commands
that can be sent to the telnet server. AYT is one
of them (it means Are You There?).
When you hit ^[, the local telnet client enters command
mode and allows you to send these 'out-of-band' commands.
The reason John (or should I call you Kate?) sees the
improvement might be due to the AYT command being sent
as URGENT TCP packets. This may cause some strange
side effects in the intermediate routers, perhaps pulling
any pending data in the TCP stream with it.
