Years away from market. With the showmanship of a Broadway producer, Alcatel used the best cable to demo 1.1 Gbps over 70 meters. More to the point, over unshielded twisted pair they reached 500 Mbps over 100 meters under lab conditions.
They then tested with a second pair "in the binder" and discovered crosstalk dropping speeds to 60 Mbps; with vectoring, they restored the the original speed.
As cable jumps to 500 megabits, telcos are looking for answers. Suggesting a near future "upgrade path" makes vectored VDSL at 50-100 meg more tempting to operaters. One chip vendor is promising 250 meg by the end of this year but that's unlikely to be shipping gear. G.fast looks to become a standard by year end. It uses frequencies up to 212 MHz, compared to 17-30 MHz in VDSL. High frequencies attenuate rapidly, so only very short loops see performance gains.
