The 'grapevine' suggests that an answer will be available this week. Wink
No promises though.

Pathetic isn't it?
BT claim to be a global communications company - but they are still relying on outdated technology like grapevines.  Cheesy

Ah!  But!  'Grapevine' was the project name that ICL (Remember them?) had for some early experiments with sending data over twisted pair.  A pre-cursor to the RJ45 version of Ethernet Cheesy   
Magic speed of 1 Mbps despite the sceptics (including me Undecided )claiming it would never work!  Back in 1985 IIRC
So grapevines may not be as outmoded as you claim Crazy

Re: When can we expect answers to Questions solicited by Peter Jackson?

Are the answers being released to the PUG under the NDA?
What do the Jungle Drums say?
Are those Smoke Signals I see or has someone blown a fuse?
So many questions..... so little time.

No.  I expect the answers to be published here in Community - this is where the thread started.

But Grapevines bear fruit. Let's hope this one does and soon. Smiley

Didn't BT dump the Twisted Pair shortly after the takeover?

That's very witty Wheel_nut (even though it could be factually questionable?).

As I'm now reading this and it's April 1st, does that mean May?
PS. Maurice, I know of experiments pushing 1Mhz down twisted pairs in 1969/70, but that's a bit OT.

What a complete fiasco.  It's never going to happen IMHO.

I'm sure there'll be some kind of puerile marketing fluff produced eventually.
