Openreach has today announced that their pilot of 330Mbps capable hybrid fibre G.fast broadband technology is being significantly expanded to include 26 new locations across the United Kingdom (1 million premises by the end of 2017). Various areas from Liverpool to Cardiff are on the list.

I was one town away from the G.fast area  :(

I hope these new pilot areas will give people who are active in the forums the ability to give us some feedback on how it performs.

How do people sign up for it? Do they contact their isp? Will it be a paid service?

Is a pilot area a commercial roll out? If not, then I guess the commercial roll out plans have been pushed back. I'm thinking maybe this will be another data experiment to get an idea of how many people will actually take up the offer.

That certainly explains all the recent posts here and on TBB about pods popping up everywhere.

I see that two of those listed locations are where a somewhat younger black cat lived for seven years, each.  ::)

BNE enginer was fixing G.Fast pod to my cab at Bathampton at 6pm couple of evenings ago, but cabinet other end of village will need to be reshelled before it gets one I think.
Spotted G.Fast pods all around Bath, Upper Weston,Bathwick,etc, but they still haven't done cab 46 on Warminster Road,junction of North Road yet.

And there another cabinet on the Warminster Road, junction of Claverton Hill, going that way tomorrow, so I will see if that has a G.Fast pod on it.
