VDSL2 Vectoring

[link to this post]
Have Openreach started rolling out vectoring on a wider scale?

We are around 380m from the cabinet as the crow flies, although the cable itself isn't much longer than that - maybe a fraction over 400m. Attenuation is 16.7dB and generally we used to sync at around 72Mbps give or take. Recently though I noticed we were getting the full 80Mbps so checked the line stats and noticed the attainable rate was 94Mbps.

94Mbps at 400m (16.7dB) seemed almighty impressive. I then noticed the vectoring flag was set to 1 (VECT_FULL).

Presumably Openreach have rolled out vectoring to our cabinet which is an AIO installed via BDUK SEP around 12 months ago. Not sure whether this is part of a wider rollout or whether the cab has just been targeted to try and extend the reach.

BDUK cabinets are generally the ones where vectoring is being used and its to extend the range i.e. lift a few more above the superfast threshold
