Re: G.fast limited to 150Mbps?

In reply to a post by robertcrowther:
In my experience with g.fast it's the process from the pod going live to being able to order with ISP.

So when the pod goes live it's Amber and then when you can order from an ISP it will change to Available


The last info I read on the subject was any line that needs a managed install is Amber, which is almost every single line as self install is just a trial.

Probably why Andrew mentioned even those that can touch the pod are Amber.

No surprise this changes to Available when live.

I just checked a line with high 330/50 and low 330/33.3 and it's showing Amber.
The pods been live over a year.

Self-install G.Fast? Really? They're going to let people change the wiring in their cabs themselves?

ADSL/VDSL have been "self install" for years. It means an engineer doesn't need to visit the premises as the end user can plug the router/modem in themselves. The network changes are still done by an engineer but the engineer doesn't need to enter the premises.

As Ian replied.
A "managed install" involves the engineer attending the premises and checking the line, connecting the modem, and correcting any internal wiring issues".

Problems with extension wiring can affect FTTC considerably or a little but can cripple G.Fast.

Early FTTC was all managed installs with the white OpenReach modems.
They trialled self installs then it became the normal install process.
Managed installs are still available on FTTC but not all ISP's even offer these.
Self install is the norm.

G.Fast is currently managed installs only with self install on a limited trial.
All managed install lines show as Amber.

AIUI sales can be limited to the smaller G.Fast package and then when live an upgrade to 330Mb can be ordered. Not sure if this affects every Amber line.
