So basically unless you are in a pilot area, no method of knowing / guessing you should end up with it at your exchange?

G-Fast 'planned' notices have also vanished from my DSL checker results.

Not sure what that means.

Oh well I ain't bother to be honest. I knew openreach failed on G. Fast planned. Not good enough in my view. Plus G. Fast are expensive anyway as I would not order it if it was available.

You're making a lot of noise about something you're "not bothered" about ??  ;)

It means they are doing checker updates behind the scenes. Database maintenance. Nothing too interesting, wait and see when it comes back.

I was so close to saying that maybe it meant they had changed their mind on G.fast for those areas and were hoping to deploy FTTP instead but had a flash of conscience.

Don't you dare!   Someone may take that seriously  ;)  ;D

I happened to be in Tunbridge Wells/Southborough yesterday, when I saw what looked very much like a G.Fast pod attached to one of the PCP cabinets. I wasn't 100% sure at the time if it was a G.Fast pod but now that i've compared pictures, it does indeed look like one. And indeed, checking on BT's DSLChecker on connection availability at nearby addresses, G.Fast is live!

I was very surprised to see this - i've not seen any mention of Tunbridge Wells/Southborough getting G.Fast, nor does it appear on ThinkBroadband's Map or OpenReach's list of pilot locations!

I'm not sure how recent it is, Google Streetview's most recent imagery from June 2017 doesn't show it however as you can see in my photo it's already started to get a bit of cobweb buildup on it. Looks to be Cabinet 50 on the Tunbridge Wells exchange.

I've been live on G.fast since Wednesday but unfortunately the speed isn't even reaching the handback threshold speed so I'm in the process of getting an SFI arranged.

I'm currently connected through an OR G.fast modem so stats aren't available but the latest collected stats from an Asus DSL-AC88U can be seen here.

I'm not too sure what to make of the FEC plot for the US.  :o

I changed the graph to logarithmic and got this!

(one of these days I'll get around to finding an easy way to shrink image size, today is not that day)

It's a pretty good graphical representation of differences between VDSL2 on the left and G.fast on the right  :graduate:
