Allows different upstream and downstream for each user. I need faster upstream because we're backing up 10's of Terabytes of Jennie's video footage to Amazon's unlimited cloud. At $55/year, that's a great deal. I've spent two months so far at Time Warner's top speed of 20 megabits, 200 down. I'd much rather have 75/75, but FiOS doesn't come to my building.

G.fast allows changing the ratio from 90/10 to 10/90. Sckipio demonstrated 750 up. Today, that must be done across the entire binder. DTA will allow individually switching each line. If we had 500 megabits from fiber to my basement, I could have 100 down and 400 up. If my neighbor installed 12 virtual reality headsets for gaming friends, she might prefer 400 down, 100 up. (Wish I had the speed today.)

Ronan Kelly will be showing the new gear at the G.fast Summit Thursday morning. He emails me about their plans, "The primary innovation that we are demonstrating at the event will be our G.fast (currently 106MHz) over COAX. This novel approach permits service providers with access to COAX cable assets in MDUs to deliver G.fast based services over even greater distances than what could be achieved with twisted pair mediums. 
In addition to this, we will be demonstrating a working implementation of DTA (Dynamic Timing Allocation), which permits G.fast, when deployed in a cross talk free environment, like on a single isolated twisted pair or on heavily shielded cables like COAX, to dynamically adjust the timing allocation for upstream and downstream transmission, on a real time basis, reacting to subscribers usage. Ultimately this approach brings a symmetric like experience to users, which when implemented in our amendment 3 implementation, will deliver a symmetric like gigabit service on either single pair implementation or on coaxial point to point implementations." 
 
Kelly sounds like the marketing VP, as he is, but I can confirm the Adtran technology looks very good,


212 GHz and cDTA are soon shipping from Adtran. True gigabit is here. Sales takeoff is almost in sight, probably Q1 2018.
Australia confirms 1M, AT&T is ready to ramp, DT finally is moving. Omantel and Telkom South Africa are now on the map. Almost all telcos are now choosing G.fast for large buildings when they don't go FTTH. MNet Cologne and Chunghwa Taiwan have changed from fiber all the way to G.fast in the basement.

Adtran Chosen for Australia nbn Fiber to the curb. http://bit.ly/GFnabAus

nbn looking to a million lines. This one is big. Adtran is on a roll, with DT & AT&T also looking good for 2018.

1,400,000,000 In The Works. 1.4 Gigabits http://bit.ly/GF14Gig
