It makes me wonder if they stopped experimenting but left the lines with it enabled on.

Though thats just my speculation. It would be good to see what the official word is.

I thought the official word was "were not touching anything while people are working from home due to a pandemic", so turning it off could equally be off the cards.

I mean it seems to be working fine here but honestly now my drop wire fault is fixed, it would probably be just as fine without g.inp.

I might chase up an update since the media, and others have decided to give up on it, but personally I have accepted I am never likely to see it, for me progression is now moving on to a better underlying tech aka FTTP.

BT quoted me 50k for FTTP over a year ago. I highly doubt they'll be rolling out in the Neath Port Talbot area (South Wales) this decade, as the whole area appears to have been missed off the Fiber First map.

Once my current contract with BT expires, I'll consider Starlink, though I'm not keen on the 100W power draw of the dish, though will be infintely better speeds than my 23Mbit VDSL sync.

No Openreach FTTP planned here either, but there is at least a cityfibre rollout ongoing so I should be able to get FTTP at some point thankfully.

In your situation satellite seems a good bet or 4g might be worth a look as well.

I'm sure Openreach week cover your area with FTTP - they haven't announced all the areas they will be covering yet

All the less densely populated areas around me are all in plans for FTTP.

If my area, or at least the metropolitan borough, isn't in any plans then something is going on.

It feels like we're entering a broadband version of the 4 yorkshireman conversation  :)

I hope so, though feel it will probably be exlcluded, due to having an existing VM coax network.

My house was part of 7 built years after the original VM rollout (NTL at the time), Virgin Media were asking for 40k to infill around 15 years ago. Inflation adjusted, that's probably 70k today!

Not necessarily so, my location, small private development of about 50 dwellings, ranging from 60 to 35 year build, all UG POTS distribution, all with Virgin cable availability going back to NTL days, has been fully fibre provisioned by OR contractors early this year.

Of course I appreciate that there are regional variations my area being north west N.I..

A large chunk of my exchange has Virgin (though it ends just before my FTTC cabinet) but its Fibre First.  CityFibre are rolling out too (who claim to do WHOLE CITIES, so that could be interesting).

Now granted, I think my exchange is the biggest in Sheffield, but the point is that Virgin doesn't automatically change anything.  They'd lose most of their customer base if they ignored cabled areas.
