With many parts of the UK relying on government funding to obtain "superfast" fibre broadband (25Mb+) speeds, through BDUK. I take it that we'll be back in the same position again when (or should I say if) BT do go ahead with this G.Fast that is now being mentioned? I take it this new method (which BT currently sees will offer 500Mb to "most" areas of the UK by 2025) will once again require new equipement, which will again be deemed not commercially viable for all but the most densely populated areas?
Or, is this just G.Fast just going to use the same kit that is being installed now (inckuding for the BDUK sites) just using it more efficiently?
If anyone can explain how exactly this G.Fast works and what it might entail for roll-out?
I should probably add that I doubt this "10 year" vision will indeed come to fruition in 10 years, so I'm not getting my hopes up for even the commercially viable areas just yet, let alone BDUK ones.
