In the UK, G.fast is seeing mass adoption. British ISP Openreach and its partners are deploying G.fast widely. Still, it's possible that American ISPs may yet embrace it as an inexpensive way to bridge the gap between fiber on the street and the home.

There is so much wrong with that one sentence, apart from Openreach not being an ISP the fact that G.fast is utterly useless in most US environment as distance to the cabinet would be far too great.  Their current use to connect apartment buildings makes much more sense as presumably they can use the whole spectrum that way, not having to section off other DSL frequencies.

Perhaps someone should tell the author of that article it's been pretty much quietly dropped in the UK.

Honestly I had to double check the date, it sounded like an article that might have been written 5-10 years ago.

I frequent other forums, DOCSIS 3.1 is hardly rare even in the US.
