      I went for 40 so i could order now
      will bump to 80 depending on the attenuation and snr
      when the engineer comes

      I dont want interleaving being enabled if 80 will be close to the max line speed

      Re: Dont Believe Fibre Rollout Map

      Judging by that screen dump of the BT Infinity site you should be able to get the full 80/20 connection speed.

      At least it won't be too long now.
