The odds of 32 devices hitting 2.4Gb/s between them are extremely low.
Perhaps in residential areas but certainly not in areas where most/all of the FTTP connections are business customers, eg in business parks. Let's not forget that BT/Openreach offers FTTP to both residential and
business customers and most of the 1 Gig customers are likely to be biz customers (at least initially). Of course FTTP - whether supplied to residential or business customers - is still a shared service on the BTW/OR platform but at least by having XGPON fibre from exchange to premises you reduce the possibility of congestion on this segment.
Just a shame that Openreach still insist on not having truly symmetrical speeds on FTTP, but hey ho their lucrative leased line revenue has to be protected
