GFast update -new ITU Broadband standard fast tracks route to 1Gbit/s..

New ITU broadband standard fast-tracks route to 1Gbit/s - G.fast capitalizes on existing copper to deliver fibre speeds at lower costs

Geneva, 11 December, 2013 - ITU membership has reached first-stage approval of G.fast, the new ITU broadband standard capable of achieving access speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s over existing telephone wires.

Within 250-metre range of a distribution point, G.fast's fibre-like speeds give service providers a tool to supplement and further monetize fibre to the home (FTTH) strategies with the customer self-installation benefits of ADSL2. G.fast, within the fibre to the distribution point (FTTdp) architecture, combines the best aspects of fibre and ADSL2.

Consumers will have an over-the-counter solution, self-installed without a technician's assistance, but equipped to support bandwidth-intensive services such as Ultra-HD '4K' or '8K' streaming and IPTV, advanced cloud-based storage, and communication via HD video.
