Swisscom-2014-320“Everything we do from now on will be based around G.fast,” according to Swisscom’s Oliver Lamparter, blogs Australia's nbn.  Their first 1,000 lines have convinced them. Swisscom two years ago planned a multi-technology buildout. From here on, most of it will be FTTP in new builds, G.fast/fiber to the street in existing homes. Lamparter added, "We don’t envisage extending the FTTP footprint too much further in Brownfield areas because G.fast gives us a much better way of delivering ultra-fast services.”

Some more details from Swisscom's financial call. "So we have today the Wireline business, an ultra-broadband footprint of 3.4 million households, which has a bandwidth of 50 megabits per second. We implemented also G.fast, as the first operator in the EU, which will bring faster speeds on our network. We will be able to deliver up to 500 megabits per second speeds on our fiber-to-the-street footprint. The goal in the Wireline business is to have a coverage of 85% with a bandwidth of over 100 megabits per second in the year 2020."

Both Huawei and Nokia were hopeful of winning the contract. They are sharing the next phase at British Telecom, over 100,000 lines in the next six months.


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.
