    And the rest

    As a 30-something, I suspect I'll be long gone before something like this actually sees the light of day. It's 2021 and we're still on 40MBps in a non-rural area We went from 512KB ADSL in ~ 1999/2000 to 40MBps in the space of about 10 to 15 years, then everything just stopped. "That's all you're having".

    And added to this crap if you try to upload, <10MBps.

    Re: Nokia and Vodafone successfully trial 100Gbps fibre broadband

    In theory the transition to future FTTP technologies should be smoother than we've seen with the change from copper to fibre. Going from DSL to FTTP requires extensive civil engineering work, but once the fibre is installed it should last through many generational PON upgrades. In general, PON technologies are designed to coexist on the same network so there doesn't need to be any hard transition

    Re: Nokia and Vodafone successfully trial 100Gbps fibre broadband

    I went from 256/256 kbit via ADSL that maxed out at 6/1 mbit on the poor copper, but within 6 years i was on 30/30 mbit via fiber. ( +10 years ago )
    There is a ISP here that offer up 5gbit connections, but they have not ventured out on the general fiber net here and so just offer their deal to entire apartment blocks, though i doubt most will take 5/5gbit even if it is at a price i would jump on being a guy on a meager pension with a lot of other stuff to spend money on too.

    Okay i had to commit document fraud to get the fiber company to come to my house, basically filled in interest forms on behalf of every household within 3 km in the rural area i lived in back then.
    At the fiber introduction meeting, only 10 or so interested parties turned up, out of the many more than showed interest online , and they did also start digging my way and within a year i was on fiber.

    If you just sit on your ass, you are never going to get it, so get out there kick in some doors

    My friend is on fiber and like me gigabit, but he have 900 mbit more in upload than i have on my cable connection. just lecher gigabit i have.

    Re: Nokia and Vodafone successfully trial 100Gbps fibre broadband

    Apartment buildings are attractive for FTTB because they can lay one leased line to the building, light it at say 10Gbps then offer 1Gbps packages throughout the building using Cat5 or short-range fibre.

    As it stands, packages in excess of 1Gbps are mostly marketing as few routers/equipment have ports over 1Gbps anyway, though that does seem to be changing (FINALLY!) with decreasing cost of 2.5Gb ports.

    Shocking!

    I'm surprised they didn't check the IP address or have email / phone number requirements.

    Isn't that the truth. I'm on 35Mb in my town. Given the 70's estate ducting for phonelines in half the town I don't think Openreach will be rushing to lay fibre here either. (Openreach have barely laid any fibre in Southampton itself yet so I think my small town anything earlier than 2035 will be lucky)

    I think that is the most frustrating part of this FTTP business - Openreach/Virgin/other fibre providers all fight for the same high density cities and everyone else has nothing unless you are lucky/cook the books like Gentle Viking!

    I'd be happy to just get a stable Virgin connection with no packet loss or latency issues.

    Must be nice being on Copper to begin with, my entire area is still on Aluminium, because rural areas just get forgotten by ISP's. Getting copper was quoted as a nearly 7 figure sum by OpenReach last year, and the quote for a fibre run was 8 figures, for less than a mile.

    Re: Nokia and Vodafone successfully trial 100Gbps fibre broadband

    Did they actually say how long the distance was? Data centres have had 400GB/s for a while now, and that's a couple meters. I'd hope that it's at least a mile otherwise it's just telecom people are just playing marketing as usual.
