G.Fast


[link to this post]
 
Been watching the DSL checker recently as it was showing G.Fast planned against my number, however its disappeared this morning, then I happened to be walking the dog and noticed some contractors working on the cabinets just down the road from me and looks like they are installing G.Fast pod onto the PCP.

Hopefully it will be live soon and I will be able to upgrade. Would be happy to share my experience between their install and go live to upgrade timescales.

So contractors spent the whole day there yesterday so I assume the pod is up and running as they where feeding all the cable through. I assume the next stage is for someone at openreach to come and commission the box.

Most likely, good luck with it. I think I'm just slightly out of range to even get G.fast sadly so I'm stuck with the archaic and troublesome ECI DSLAM (VDSL2/FTTC) tongue.

Not sure if its related but Openreach guy working in a manhole just down the road from cabinet. May or may not be related to the new G.Fast pod.

He has been there pretty much all day going between the man hole a few houses away from the cabinet, back to the cabinet and the manhole covers in front of the cabinet etc.

The PCP one.


Sounds more like an extension pod for the PCP so that it can handle more lines rather than a g.fast pod.

I am almost certain its a g.fast pod. Unless Huawei do PCP extensions as it was in a Huawei box before they installed it.

Looks exactly this like: https://imgur.com/a/HS0BYc5
