I got several requests on how fast potato internet is, so I plugged one between the second DSL wire.
Didn't even cost much bandwidth, still about 175/39 Mbit/s! Definitely some HF-magic going on here.
The apple doesn't seem to be too happy about the heat in the cabinet, though.

Under normal circumstances (say: no food connected to my modem) my line syncs to ~205/45 Mbit/s, btw.

Because there were some questions regarding my cabling: I wired the line to pin 4 & 5 of an 8P8C (falsely known as RJ45) socket. I stripped away the extra wires for this photo.
