The contact says 2 Gig, I've not seen the SFR physical
presentation, but Orange provide a fibre into the house (they own
the last kilometre), which goes into a small media converter box
which then goes into their "all in once device" via CAT-6 & RG45.

I'm not 100% sure, having not seen the actual device that SFR
offer. I know it's Orange that will provide the physical fibre to
the house though, not SFR.

The implication (my assumption) is that they provide router
with multiple 1Gb RJ-45 Gig Ethernet on the LAN side and a 2.5Gig
Ethernet on the LAN side (CAT6 or fibre?).

So you are correct that no single device can exceed a 1G
connection it's self, but the house could pull 2 Gig in total over
several decvices, which is what they are suggesting on their web

It may be that it's best to put up with the ISPs own device, the
current one they provide does allow you a certain degree of
customisation, and even works very well in English too.... I know
it's a custom Linux application - or at least that's what NMAP

The annoying thing is they don't do WireGuard VPN on their
