as i said. orange fibre lines in france are using dscp/tos markings for 
voice, iptv and internet. if it would be just inbound nobody would care.

but outgoing traffic must be marked as well. for initial dhcp lease from 
this isp you need to mark dhcp markets with dscp 6 for instance. 
otherwise you get no response
the exact same platform is used in spain and netherlands. but i cannot 
remember the isp names anymore. but it was always for fiber isps

its the codename for the cpu armv7 platform of broadcom which is out 
since many years.

you may know it under the name bcm4709. they are comming almost with 
dualcore from 800 - 1400 mhz

the hw on the home market is already fast enough to beat your apu2. not 
every plastic router of cause
but some of them are really high performing

wifi 6 the new buzzword. i still call it ax.  everytime a marketing 
idiot creates a new name for existing technology i get gastric spasm
consider that wifi 6 brings almost nothing unless you're close to the 
router and my current 802.11ac routers with qca9984 chipsets
already beating the gigabit limit.
