BT’s forthcoming 300-500Mbps G.fast broadband technology won’t just be used to upgrade homes.

Israel-based Sckipio has made several announcements at the start of this week’s Broadband World Forum event, not least with their ability to squeeze a broadband speed of 2000Mbps out of the new G.fast (ITU G.9701) technology that BT are also preparing to roll-out. But there’s a catch.
