As far as FTTC goes probably nothing but newer technologies should bring higher speeds in time.

Be aware these are potentially half a decade or more away.

It'll probably cost a bit more than the current FTTC but then if you want more you usually have to pay more.

I vaguely recall paying over £50 pm for my first ADSL line, back in 2000, on top of the line rental. You've got to expect to pay for new capabilities, one way or another.

The first of the g.fast speed test results from the trials re in top item on www.thinkbroadband.com

The Gigabit part is actually a GPON FTTH trial, G.Fast is aiming for a 300 Mbps product, so likely to be same pricing as BT Infinity 4 once it finally launches

FTTC might not have many improvements left in store for people at the top end of the speeds, especially as vectoring looks to be stalled somewhat, in favour of the G.Fast work.

However, there might be improvements in speed for those at the fringes of cabinet coverage. Deeper FTTRN nodes can bring FTTC speeds to small clusters out at the extremities of cabinet coverage; BT have been trialling this, but power has been the issue. Huawei have recently hinted that they are providing a power solution for a full rollout of FTTRN.

Given the volume of infill on existing cabinets I am seeing in Northern Ireland and Cornwall I'd say FTTrN is in use a fair bit now.

Trouble is would talk about this more in the news, but people don't seem to enjoy positive stuff, like spotting more FTTP in various Openreach areas

So maybe by 2018 speeds will be about to increase to over 100mb? I see the gfast might be the fastest with gigabit speeds but can it be used? Computers etc?
