Openreach names next locations for G.fast deployment

26 Jun 2018

BT’s network unit Openreach has named 59 new locations across the UK that will benefit from its ongoing rollout of G.fast technology, ISPreview reports. With around one million premises across 45 locations already passed by G.fast, the pilot phase of the technology deployment is now coming to an end, and Openreach is expected to begin ramping up its commercial rollout. In line with this, the new locations where G.fast is to be deployed are spread across the country, ranging from Aberdeen in Scotland, to the Welsh capital Cardiff, Plymouth in the South West and Maidstone in the South East. Openreach’s ongoing deployment of 330Mbps-capable G.fast technology is ultimately aiming to cover ten million homes and business by the end of 2020.
