Is interval training (high speed for a minute, low speed for a minute and repeat) a good way to burn fat or should i stick to the medium (60%-70% of max heart rate) at a fixed speed...

I use interval training during my cardio work all the time.
I believe you will burn more fat for longer periods of time with interval training. Also, it is great for cardio-vascular development as long as you don't over do it. My advice, listen to your body, this takes time to lear how to do, but once mastered, you will know when you are close to overdoing it.

Duration is also important. Any cardio should be done for a min of 20-30 mins. to achieve fat burn. (I like to go 45-60 mins when on a cutting cycle)

Hope that helps.
