As I said "FTTC for me is brilliant" however I could utilise more and the purpose of the thread is to find out what people think the next big steps in internet connectivity will be for the mainstream.
G.Fast I don't know much about, have heard it mentioned would be nice to know if its coming to my area anytime soon.
BT have said that they'll aim to cover 10 million premises with G.Fast by 2020, and "most of the UK" by 2025. And that the speeds will be, initially, "up to 300Mbps", rising later to "up to 500Mbps". There has also been mention of gigabit fibre products for businesses.
BT are currently running an early trial phase for G.Fast, and one of those trials also runs FoD2 trials, with new "fibre on demand" installation methods.
More recently, they've confirmed the next pilot stage of the G.Fast rollout, for the summer, but we've had few details about the makeup of the deployment. There's also been mention that they'll deploy more fibre (in the sense of FTTP), but almost no detail at all.
Does this mean that FoD2 will become a standard option everywhere that G.Fast gets rolled out? Possibly, but it is unknown.
Who will be in the 10 million? Unknown. What counts as "most of the UK"? Unknown.
