Any sign of G.Fast pilot areas going live yet?

Lots of boxes, no sign of service as yet...

I agree.

So far I've only seen one guy on youtube in a gfast pilot area setting up his connection.

Is there some kind of NDA on people in a pilot area not to give out information?

Well I'm in Bath, one of the new area's chosen for the extended G Fast trial, cabinet went in several months ago, & nothing, no offer of getting on trial or anything else.

I'm actually in a pilot area, and I'm not seeing any activity beyond the boxes being installed. Nothing is becoming available.

The live premise count has gone from 39,000 to 51,000 in the last 2 weeks, and that's from just randomly finding the pods so likely to be lots more

The map at https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/broadband-map is missing the cabs in Middenhall, Suffolk and will get updated later in the week

Not as far as I know.

We have customers live and pending for G.fast services. Just the sample area of who can get a service is relatively small.

In reply to a post by Nightglow:

Same here.

G.Fast cabinet fitted months ago. Exchange listed on the extended trial list, but no sign of anything on the BT Wholesale Checker.
Have looked up a couple of G.Fast cabinets on the Combe Down exchange (not listed on the extended trial list) and that's not on the BT Wholesale Checker either.

Spotted a pair of OpenReach staff working at a pair of FTTC/PCP cabinets this morning though.

The only place I've seen on the BT Wholesale Checker was a cabinet on the Swindon exchange from the original trial list.

There still a few cabinets which haven't had a G Fast pod added yet in Bath, like Cabinet 46, on A36 Warminter Road junction of North Road & a lot of the older iron cabinets are also bare.
Also been a lot of OR activity at Holburne Park (old MOD site) just up the road.
