Isn't pfsense intended to run on appliances with no dedicated hardware acceleration, not hardware routers with SoCs and ASICs?

Tomato flavours are I believe intended for such devices though.

I would say yes, given its based on FreeBSD.

Tomato, when I used it was on a device with a capable ASIC but the dev's didnt have access to the appropriate driver which was exclusive to asuswrt.

My combined is 130Mbps down. FTTPoD is my only option, and I guess it'll stay that way for some time to come with Covid.

Having said that, now into my 7th week of WFH and both my internet services have been flawless, no slowdowns or dropouts. I did, more out of curiosity look at GEA/EFM, but I can't apparently get GEA. EFM was 200 a month, and only 14Mbps synchronous. So, nah.

Well done on the 1Gb Carl. My wife and I are forever debating whether we should stay in this house and simply extend it, or move. If we can decide that then I can decide whether to FTTPoD it. If we extend then I think I could justify FTTPoD - especially if going forward we're going to be both WFH more often.

. . . and only 14Mbps synchronous. So, nah.

I think you meant to type symmetric rather than synchronous.
