      Higher Connection, Slower Speeds!

      Hey,

      Thanks!

      Interleaving. It is used to help keep a line stable but will slightly increase latency - it is turned on by default on the Sky network. You can request for it to be turned off.

      High speeds come with a price!

      I have interleaving turned on (however I am on F2S) and my average ping is about 36 / 38

      Wasn't much better with it off for me tbh
