19th August, 2021 (32 Comments)

Openreach (BT) might have shelved the use of hybrid fibre G.fast (ITU G.9701) broadband technology in the UK, but the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has continued to develop a sequel to that technology called MGfast (G.9711) and it will soon become more widely available, with speeds of up to 8Gbps being promised.

19th February, 2021 (28 Comments)

The Broadband Forum has published a new technical report (TR-419), which proposes a different way for “full fibre” (FTTP) builders to cut their deployment costs via a Fibre-to-the-extension-point (FTTep) approach. In short, it’s another way of cutting out the need to replace the last few metres of copper with fibre.

26th August, 2017 (52 Comments)

Researchers from ADTRAN and BT are working towards conducting the first lab trials of G.mgfast technology in 2019, which could become the successor to today’s hybrid-fibre G.fast technology and one that might conceivably push broadband speeds up to 5-10Gbps over traditional copper lines.

16th August, 2017 (17 Comments)

A couple of months ago we became the first to detail Openreach’s trial of a combined FTTdp and G.fast broadband network that used hardware from NetComm Wireless. Today NetComm has confirmed that their test achieved a peak aggregate broadband speed of 1.66Gbps.

20th July, 2017 (4 Comments)

German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom and ADTRAN, which supplies the kit being used in various broadband roll-outs around the world, have conducted lab trials of the new hybrid-fibre G.fast technology using the 212MHz and coordinated Dynamic Time Allocation (cDTA) upgrades.

23rd June, 2017 (53 Comments)

Openreach (BT) has confirmed that they’re testing a new Fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp) style of G.fast broadband technology that mounts hardware from NetComm Wireless on top of telegraph poles, which shows that the operator hasn’t given up on FTTdp.

17th June, 2017 (13 Comments)

Historically hybrid-fibre broadband services like VDSL (FTTC) rely on a mix of fibre optic and twisted-pair copper cables, although signal attenuation over the latter always ends up reducing performance over distance and the new G.fast (ITU G.9700/9701) technology is particularly susceptible.

9th May, 2017 (9 Comments)

California-based ASSIA, which supplies broadband management systems to ISPs, has today announce that “extreme high frequency sub-millimeter waves” could in the future be used to push broadband speeds of up to 1Tbps (Terabit per second) down a single 100 metre twisted-pair copper line.

4th May, 2017 (3 Comments)

The Broadband Stakeholders Group, which acts as a think-tank for government policy, has predicted that the cost of implementing the UK’s legally-binding 10Mbps Universal Service Obligation (USO) for broadband speed could be anything from £180m and up to £930m; depending upon the cost threshold.

7th January, 2017 (65 Comments)

Openreach (BT) will on Monday officially start the deployment phase for their new pilot of ‘up to’ 330Mbps capable G.fast (ITU G.9700/9701) broadband technology, which by the end of March 2017 should have been rolled out to 138,000 homes and businesses in 17 places across the United Kingdom.

18th October, 2016 (34 Comments)

A new trial of the future XG.FAST technology, which could one day replace Openreach’s forthcoming G.fast based ultrafast broadband service, has beaten last year’s BT trial by pushing a peak aggregate speed of 8000Mbps over 30 metres of twisted-pair copper (BT achieved 5.6Gbps at a similar distance).

17th October, 2016 (9 Comments)

A new report from Ovum, which was jointly commissioned by BT and Australia’s nbn, has forecast that some 29 million subscribers will be using a G.fast based ultrafast broadband connection by 2021 (3% of the global fixed broadband market) and most of those will be in Western Europe.

19th September, 2016 (23 Comments)

The co-founder and CEO of Sckipio Technologies, David Baum, has suggested to ISPreview.co.uk that BT’s plan to roll-out 300Mbps G.fast broadband technology could save as much as £980 per home vs a pure fibre optic (FTTH/P) network and even faster speeds should be possible in the future.

14th June, 2016 (34 Comments)

We already know a lot about BT’s forthcoming roll-out of “ultrafast” 300-500Mbps G.fast technology and last month’s new technical document (here) similarly appeared to confirm that the operator had opted to deploy the service from street cabinet extensions. This week we finally got a look at one.

16th May, 2016 (5 Comments)

Israel-based Sckipio, which is building some of the kit for BT’s hybrid-fibre G.fast broadband trials and pilot, has heralded a big improvement to the technology by developing Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) to deliver up to 1.5Gbps in combined upstream and downstream performance.

9th February, 2016 (3 Comments)

BT’s forthcoming 300-500Mbps G.fast broadband technology won’t just be used to upgrade homes. The operator has also claimed a “world first” by using the G.fast to supply a cellular Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) over copper lines, which could be used to support 4G and future 5G mobile services.

28th January, 2016 (28 Comments)

Israel-based Sckipio, which is making some of the hardware for BT’s forthcoming hybrid-fibre G.fast (ITU G.9700/1) broadband tech, claims to have successfully tested a connection that delivers speeds of 300Mbps over 500 metres of copper cable and this could rise to 500Mbps. But there’s a catch.
