Multi-access networks exhibit severe unfairness in throughput. Recent studies show that this unfairness is due to local differences in the neighborhood structure: Nodes with less neighbors receive better access. We study the unfairness in tandem networks, and adapt the multi-access protocol to remove the unfairness completely, by choosing the activity rates of nodes appropriately as a function of the number of neighbors.
