G.fast pilot deployment beginning 9 Jan 2017 - Redux


[link to this post]
 
As noted on this post.

https://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/updates/briefi...

G.fast pilot deployment will begin 9 January 2017

Whatís next?
Our pilot deployment will take place in; Cherry Hinton in Cambridgeshire, Gillingham in Kent, Bolton in Greater Manchester, Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, Derby in Derbyshire, Donaldson in South East Scotland, Langside in Glasgow, Luton in Bedfordshire, Rusholme in Manchester, St. Austell in Cornwall, Swansea in Wales, Swindon in Wiltshire, Sheffield and Balham and Upton Park in London.

Itís our ambition to make Ultrafast speeds available to 138,000 homes and businesses by the end of March 2017 via our G.fast pilot deployment phase.


160Mb/30Mb and 330Mb/50Mb so will probably hit end users as 150 and 300Mb.

So, how long before the rest of the country?

It seems to be the same places that get first dibs.

I was thinking the same, our exchange has been used loads of times for trials, sadly it wasn't this time.

The nearest one that was to us is the Upton Park (London) Exchange.

Exchanges with lots of FTTP are less likely to see G.fast but might be candidates for expansion or completion of the FTTP holes

Is there any word on whether the whole areas served by these participating exchanges will be G.fast enabled, or just a few cabinets?

I would imagine just certain cabinets.

I don't suppose all the cabinets have FTTC yet, so no, I don't suppose all the cabinets will get g.fast

Parts of those areas, and given the range of G.fast even if every cabinet got a g.fast pod not everyone would benefit.

Toggling the two layers at https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/g-fast-map-model will give some idea of the differences that decisions in deployment can make.

NOTE: Map is not based on any secret role out, but is purely a model based on what we know about g.fast capabilities and a desire to hit 10 million premises figure.

Further tweaks like retail providers expressing a desire to have a faster service to compete with Virgin Media might see a massive overlap with the cable network.

And then they will just say " people can get FTTP" and not include the area, omitting the fact it's FTTPoD which no one can seem to order anyway. (Even Spectrum came up blank for me)

Usual BT trying to avoid paying tactics.
