Point-Topic, a very respected broadband data source, now has figures for G.fast. They also have produced a clickable map, something I've been working on as well. (I've reproduced their map small at left; please go to their site for the data.)
I believe they have all the large and medium-sized telcos with announced deployments.
Many in the industry aren't making information public so there is a lot of uncertainty. I know there are numerous smaller companies active; Calix has announced 100 active customers, some only a single building but some good-sized. Adtran has dozens of trials.
They've identified 93,000 homes passed at British Telecom, a disappointing figure if they are to reach 10M by 2020. BT was waiting for DSLAMs with more capacity, promised soon by Huawei and Nokia. (I hear they are in the lab.) Swisscom reached 70,000 homes.
Point-Topic's Simona Pranulyte also does film work. The still at left is from Jack Panna, a documentary she worked on.
Here is their public press release. Their full service is competitively priced and I recommend it if you have a business need for the data.
