are you sure about that? can you produce anything to say that's the case? ECI themselves say it doesn't. The white OpenReach ECI modems support upstream G.INP, but the M41 DSLAM doesn't.
However (even if they did not), that is still not a commercial decision to spend several hundred million replacing all ECI kit.
I totally agree with the 2nd part of your post. There's no commercial case for swapping out ECI cabinets. They generate the same revenue as Huawei cabinets and 99% of EU's won't know there's even a difference.
