Wonder if it'll change much with NGA2/FTTPoD2 and connectorisation.

I can copy/paste from the handbook:

At the end of the minimum contract term the FTTP on Demand circuit can be ceased without early termination penalty. The customer is free to move to FTTP at any available speed or other option. This is not a migration or regrade and would not be triggered automatically. This change would rely on the customer initiating the order of a new circuit and ceasing the old.

Something else to add is that with FTTPoD, you can actually use the second port and order a normal GEA-FTTP service from a different ISP.

I would be surprised if this has been done by anyone, but I've used both ports before and it worked fine.

I personally would wait a bit and see how things pan out for BT with their NGA2.

It is likely we will see a commercial deployment of G.fast this year and I expect not so long there after, a more cost effective FTTPoD to be on offer.

I think G.fast will benefit around 1/4 to 1/3 of existing FTTC users, if deployed at cabinets. This leaves a noticeable gap and I think there will be increasing commercial pressure on BT from Virgin Media to really compete with them on a national level.

you have any idea why not all FTTC areas have FTTPoD?

e.g. my area still has no FTTPoD. Is it any relation to vendor?

More to do with planning and systems than anything I think.

Plenty of areas with ECI kit and FoD available.

I agree. Though only when they get the amendment 2 hardware that can reach 300m decently. And, even when that becomes available, BT might only swap to it when 48-port linecards become available.

You might be right. Installing G.Fast might give them an idea of whether to bother...

someone posted a graph on kitz showing the new power and bitloading, and its not a whole lot better.

Ultimately g.fast is going to need hard cash been spent on bringing the fibre closer to the home to make a large impact.

It looks to me these early generation cards are not worth bothering with at above 200m, and the newer stuff adds maybe 50m or so to get reasonable speeds.

I don't think BT ever got it fully out of pilot and so never extended it across the country.
