g.fast rollout


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

BT have added a G.fast pod onto our cabinet PCP 95 in Leith. (vents etc). The guys disappeared a couple of weeks ago so i'm assuming it's all complete and setup (it's got a label saying to attach sticker to it).

Question is, is there any way of actually ordering it? Or checking if it's available? BT broadband still shows upto 80mb being available so not on their checker yet.

Cheers

If the usual BT Wholesale or Openreach checker does not say anything about G.fast then its not ready.

Lots of pods have appeared but very few still ready for orders, its thought that maybe they will time it in a big announcement at once, i.e. to drive publicity and maybe get more people ordering.

I've spotted one today too near me on PCP 24 in Belper. Came as quite a surprise as it's not been mentioned anywhere as a test area.

G.fast pod can be installing onto pcp cabinet at anytime at any place, there will be no report on roadwork.org or anywhere on the openreach when and where checker. Mine is expecting next year to have g.fast around in the summer 2018.

I found one page on the Openreach website that suggests we'll be seeing "G.Fast in scope" as a status sometime...

Why do you make stuff like that up? They haven't even activated the extended trial areas.
Last time you said every cabinet on your exchange was getting a G.Fast pod. There's no possible way you could know when your cabinet is getting a G.Fast pod.
