I changed the graph to logarithmic and got this!

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

It looks like the "BT Wholesale Broadband Availability Checker" has removed all references to G.FAST availability previously listed as PLANNED.
No idea why they would do this unless they were getting too many enquiries asking for start of service dates.

Indeed they have. I was somewhat mystified as to why they were there to begin with. Having them there leads to a certain class of people contacting BT complaining about the estimate or wanting to know when exactly the build is due.

Will be added back when they're ready. The issues slowing it down in the head ends persist.

I did complain to ofcom and openreach of why both of mine neighbour houses get 330/50 except mine only get 181 as this probably the reason of removed it off.  :P :fingers:

Guilty. :blush: Though I was not complaining since for myself the high of the clean and impacted range was 330/50, but rather just curious and made enquiries about approximately when (without success).

Before I forget, my daughter's line went G.fast live the week before last.   
I'm afraid I don't have any stats and not sure when I can get over there to check it out first hand.  I believe speed tests are circa 230Mbps.

230Mbps is better than nothing. :)

I'm not sure what the actual sync speed is.  Speedtests will obviously be slower due to overheads.   From memory I think their estimated clean line rate was 240-270 Mbps.

My daughter has no interest in such things as long as it works and isnt slow, so a speedtest is about the most I will get from her.  :D   I need to catch her b/f to ask but main topic of convo this week has been several things occurring which have nothing to do with the Internet.

I would be very interested in any further details you can find out, the clean estimate for me was 262-295mbps but my current synch rate of 218Mbps doesn't even meet the handback threshold :(
