We show that the fundamental problems in providing quality-of-service in the existing Internet architecture has been the assumption that a single, ``best'' path from source to destination is adequate for any communications requirements of the network. We present a new, best-effort architecture for providing quality-of-service in the Internet based on the use of the ``best set of paths'' to destinations. We show that this set of paths is well defined, can be efficiently computed, and present an approach to efficiently implement this new, Best-Effort Quality-of-Service architecture.
