    If G.FAST is made available in rural areas I would be very interested in this, although it's going to have to deliver real benefits around a mile from the green box, not just within spitting distance.

    Nice to see some compnies still trying to improve performance on the ancient cables, because FTTH will remain an unrealistic dream in the UK for most.

    While continued research into such tech is good it's not going to produce speeds anything like that in a rural area.

    The copper here in country Australia is stuffed and needs to be ripped out. Just getting decent current ADSL speeds is rare.

    Re-read the article: this is a commercial product which is shipping (to ISPs) now, not a research project.
