Nice. I was on a Zoom call with someone in VA this week who screen shared to show off his 500 Mbps connection. I was like "Don't want to have to do this but..." 😁
Of course, I've documented how good it is here: https://tech.mangot.com/blog/2018/11/08/showing-a-gigabit-openbsd-firewall-some-monitoring-love/
