Nothing in the short term.

In future, I suspect fibre deepers with nodes closer to the home and either reverse power, or some sort of powering over the then defunct copper cabling.

Or FTTP.

I fully imagine nothing in the very short term, however I'm nonetheless going to see what I can find out.

Sadly most of my BT contacts have either moved to other operators or retired!

Some interesting snippets about G.Fast here .... http://www.analysysmason.com/Research/Content/Short-reports/Gfast-forecast-analysis-Feb2017-RDNS0/ ........ alas, it's a pay-per-view.

Have a feeling the way Virgin Media is rolling out 350Mps for £30 a month will be in your area well before G.Fast has seen daylight  :-\

350Mbps on Virgin Media are cost £48 a month. Meanwhile Openreach trial 1Gbps G.Fast: http://www.zdnet.com/article/netcomm-wireless-demos-1gbps-fttdp-g-fast-dpu-with-bt-openreach/

Actually it is from £30 a month, most likely plus VAT though.

And it's passing my door in the next few months long before g.fast.

True, though it's a product unlike Openreach's testing of 1Gb G.fast using hardware 40m from homes. Can't really compare products that are live with technology trials. Zero indication yet that Openreach intend to roll out FTTdp at any scale.

By next year VM will have faster speeds again anyway, and later on in the year DOCSIS 3.1 followed by at some point FDX DOCSIS 3.1 - VM can hit a gigabit without deploying deeper fibre and symmetrical gigabit and more without touching the last cable run to homes. VM have the lead on bandwidth until Openreach roll out widespread FTTP, and Openreach are fine with that, they don't compete on bandwidth because their customers don't ask them to :)

They do need to seriously work on their capacity though in many areas I'd assume if they're going to start offering symmetric gigabit connections?

To offer that tier at all would require work that provides a substantial capacity increase. Delivering symmetrical gigabit would involve fibre going to the last amplifier on the network alongside new equipment within the cabinet carrying that amplifier. The capacity is mostly on a per-platform basis. DOCSIS 3.1 will introduce significant additional capacity and permit a gigabit as would FDX DOCSIS 3.1. Non-symmetrical 3.1 can be done without fibre going deeper into the network though, much the same as Openreach can put an XGPON signal across the same fibre as GPON.

FDX 3.1 has to be injected at a deeper point into the network so would be closer to Openreach running FTTdp G.fast.
