Re: Will Plusnet be trialling G.fast?

Given that they only have 80-20 and 40-10 on FTTP, even though much higher speeds are technically possible I think it highly unlikely. Plus volumes are likely to be quite small, so developing a product and so on highly expensive - oh, and do you need more than 80-20?

Highly expensive? Everything is in place unlike the FTTP trial.
As for do I need more than 80-20? Maybe not, but why live life in the slow lane?

Interesting to see that Talktalk are now providing G.fast...

Is the race to the bottom over now?
