I'd like to stick with Sonic if I can, though the loss of true Sonic support and privacy protections concern me. So I want to know what to expect if I end up at a place that only has FTTN service:
- For many addresses I'm checking, I see only the 50mbps / $49.99 option ("Internet delivered over AT&T’s network using one Fiber-to-the-Node data line, plus one home phone line.") - does FTTN X2 not exist?
- If 50mbps is all I can get, how much speed will I lose if I connect to Sonic's VPN with a consumer router ("whole house" VPN)? I'm willing to spend some money to get as close to the 50mbps as possible, if needed. I currently use OpenWRT on a low-end router.
- How much will my latency increase if I run VPN at the router level? I'm assuming this will be noticeable for gaming, but what about typical web/streaming usage?
- I also currently run WireGuard on my router so I can access my home network when I'm away. Will leaving Sonic's VPN running on my router interfere with this and/or introduce additional latency?
