How long from a G.fast cab appearing to order?


[link to this post]
 
I've just noticed SLEK PCP 11 has had a g.fast cab added. Is there a rough timeline between cabs being added, to being able to order?

Between a few weeks and two years and counting is the range I know of

We had a pod install June-July off 2017. On last update Openreach expect it to be live by September. 2020.

FTTP for the entire cabinet area could have been implemented in weeks and would have been worth having: by the time this pod is live VM will be selling a gigabit and Vodafone too if they are on schedule.

Over 3 years to activate a pod that much of the passed area can't use, and those that can still have a choice of VM at 500, 1000 and cheaper stuff with Vodafone rocking a symmetrical 900, 500, 200 and 100.

I have proposed to Openreach that this would be a waste of time. There's an FTTP new build with a splitter at the end of our road heading there and we're out of range of g.fast. May as well let that pod get recycled and skip activating it in favour of FTTP. They're busily overbuilding G.fast elsewhere in the city so we'll see.

Building better networks, not just faster ones.

Any resemblance between the posts of this account and Ignitionnet are entirely intentional. R Kelly rather killed the connotations of the old one.

Our pod was installed back in mid April. My G.Fast is being installed tomorrow.

Just checked and it's now "available"... BT says "100Mb Ultrafast Option 1" is available to order. Wholesale shows ~300Mb potential.

Does anyone other than BT provide "G.fast"?

Sky and talk talk I believe, depending on their network availability.

Thanks for coming back and letting us know.

A GFast pod got bolted on to my village cabinet this week so I am looking forward to giving it a go presently.

Iíve gone with EE, as no one else on the Openreach site weíre offering me Ultrafast 2... except EE

Iím guessing their sites made a mistake, or BT want to drive up EE Subs.

Either way, it pains me to be having to leave Plusnet. Many years of pain free service, and the Static IP, but hey ho, needs must! If youíre not going to offer GFast, Iíll jump to another BT subsidiary that does!
