You've been told wrong.
Edit: just seen your edit.
Every single G.Fast line I've seen in the last couple months has the new band plan.
If you have access to stats it's easy to tell.
Will be rolled out across the country by now.
From what i've read up Vectoring needs to be enabled on VDSL but don't quote me on that.
Quoted anyway. That's absolutely nonsense.
VDSL2 Vectoring and G.Fast are completely unrelated.
It makes as much sense as saying my microwave must be on.
The G.Fast and VDSL2 DSLAM's do not talk to each other. They simply share a power supply.
Vectoring being present on the VDSL2 DSLAM makes absolutely zero difference to G.Fast. They're on different frequencies. The presence or lack of Vectoring makes ZERO difference.
The cabinet the G.Fast band plan changes were initially spotted on (linked above from kitz forum) does not have VDSL2 Vectoring, and likely will never have it.
Would love to know where you read that VDSL2 Vectoring is required for the G.Fast band plan changes or if you're just making stuff up.
