In 2016, G.fast looked very promising.
Thousands worked at developing and deploying.
It wasn't enough.
Most carriers are investing
in fiber or 5G instead.

Ultrafast Broadband Gaining Traction at Consumer Electronics Show
Sckipio Demonstrates 750Mbps Upload Speed Over Twisted Pair
LAS VEGAS, NV- Sckipio Technologies, the leader in G.fast, today announced it's demonstrating over 750Mbps of ultrafast broadband upload speeds on existing twisted pair copper telephone wires -- over 100 times faster than most consumers achieve today.) - Consumer Electronics Show -
This breakthrough performance will allow telcos worldwide to dramatically improve consumer experience with the many new consumer services and devices being announced at CES. In October of 2015, Sckipio previously demonstrated overall download and upload speeds of over 1.5Gbps by bonding two phone lines together -- a highly attractive solution for operators in North America and Taiwan.
At today's upload speeds, it'd take the average broadband subscriber over five hours to upload a thirty-second full-resolution, GoPro 4K video to YouTube -- the same amount of time it would take to fly from Los Angeles to New York City. With the G.fast solution from Sckipio, consumers could upload the same video in 2.5 minutes -- less time than it would take to brew a cup of coffee.
The ITU standard-compliant G.fast technology utilizes copper wires. The Sckipio solution is perfect for Internet Service Providers trying to bring fiber-like broadband speeds into apartment buildings and the small business market at a fraction of the cost of fiber to the premises.
"Most DSL and cable broadband technologies are unable to provide a higher ratio of upload to download speeds, making it very challenging to deliver next generation consumer services," said David Baum, CEO of Sckipio Technologies. "Since user-generated content has increasingly become important, having fast upload is critical and this is a big advantage of G.fast."
The solution is the world's fastest implementation of G.fast and it helps telcos compete very effectively against cable operators using DOCSIS 3.1.
