Gfast ordering

enquired about Gfast with Zen, was told currently unavailable as the cabinet is full. Phoned BT broadband and was told Gfast is available to order.

When I explained that another ISP had informed me the Gfast cabinet was full, BT adviser stated that ISPs have a quota of ports and once they had used them up they could no longer offer the service, but BT had free ports available.

Is this right? surely its an anti-competitive practice.

Maybe Zen don’t have the required cable link in the headend exchange and BT wholesale do? No such thing as ISP’s having a quota.....

Would help to know which G.fast cabinet this is so somebody can check what it's actual status is in the database?

Indeed, for FTTC and maybe FTTP but wasn’t sure about G.Fast?
G.fast is on majority of FTTC cabinets so if you live close enough you can get g.fast. It is the close enough since the reach for G.fast isn't as good as they first thought.

Also contacted EE broadband and they have confirmed they can also offer Gfast to me. Though they are now owned by BT.
