It looks as if OFCOM are trying to get BT to trial FTTdp
“Installing FTTDP with the existing copper wire being used for the final few meters could be more cost effective than deploying fibre all the way to the premise. It is generally considered that FTTDP would be most effective when used with a developing technology called G.fast, which can be thought of as an evolution of VDSL.”

I don't read anything into that statement as Ofcom trying to get anyone to do anything. It is a fairly accurate statement of the way things stand with FTTdp, G.Fast and copper vs fibre.
In any case, BT have already stated that it is a possible future technology, as part of the evolution of FTTC. They went as far as to say "Trial TBD" in the quarterly results, but you can bet it is already running in Martlesham.
