More of a promotion for their chipsets than an actual trial in the misty wet UK environment.

I've seen a few people get over excited by G.fast and some get angry, but have not seen any real signs of deployment. The ECI minicabs and similar are much more likely, particularly as you can do ADSL2+ with them and this might be a real boost to USC coverage.

Israel is CRAZY hot for hi-tech electronics at the moment.
Wonder if USA will spy on them like they did Huawei?

Not now but in future. As there will be 4,8 and 12K streaming

I think we're still some way away from needing anything like that.

4K looks like it will be around 15Mbps based on Netflix's H.265 (HEVC) codec that they will be using.

You would imagine that the focus of Openreach will be to look to increase the speeds of those of end users who are getting the slowest fibre speeds at the moment.

Are you aware of how large a TV would have to be for a human to resolve the detail down to pixel level?

4K sets are larger already for this reason and being pragmatic I cannot see 4K being popular in terms of TV set sales until 2017 when set prices are probably around the same as existing HD sets.
