Can I turn interleaving on or off for my broadband connection?
In short, yes you can! This is done via the My Account section of the Slingshot website.
Please be aware of the following:
- Having interleaving ON may make a connection more reliable, but has a penalty of higher latency.
- Having interleaving OFF may make a connection less reliable, but has the advantage of lower latency (this is important for gamers).
- Not all customers who switch interleaving off will see an improvement in their broadband experience, as this depends on a number of factors including congestion, distance from the exchange, bandwidth, time of day, and traffic.
- Most Slingshot broadband plans have interleaving switched on by default.
