Re: G.fast added on Cabinet 9 today


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
BTW, since the previous G.Fast thread was closed, I thought I'd post this here.

BT results for the quarter to 30 June 2019 were released on 2nd August.

Figures show there are 36,000 active G.Fast customers (up from 25,000 the previous quarter), with the number of G.Fast properties passed shown as 2.166 million (up from 2.020 million)

Active FTTP connections were 352,000 (up from 306,000), and FTTP properties passed 1.514 million (up from 1.247 million previous quarter, or 883,000 a year ago)

So if the last quarter's speed is maintained, the annualised growth rate for FTTP coverage is about 1.1m properties per year. We could expect maybe 2.0m-2.1m total by end of 2019.

As reported on here: https://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/8491-bt-group-fi...

The figures do not show the second quarter, which is important as there is much growth both on FTTP and g,fast since the end of March of this year, so it will be interesting to see the next set of figures when they are released.

Notes people need to be aware of

FTTP demand in areas of new build where FTTP is the only option is going to be very different to demand/take-up in the over build areas, either VDSL2 or cable already available.

The 4 million passed target is at build rate of the last 6 months going to be missed by a few months, so if they ramp up build to 30k/wk as results said then should be on target
