500Mbps Internet over phone lines might solve fiber’s “last mile” problem | Ars Technica: "G.fast is usable within 250 meters of a node, the highest speeds aren't likely to be available on the top end of that range.
"G.fast is intended for typical applications of 500 megabits per second (Mbps) speeds at 100 meters or less," Alcatel-Lucent said in July of this year. "In recent demonstrations and under laboratory conditions, Alcatel-Lucent achieved 1.3 Gbps over 70 meters, making G.fast a promising option for service providers to complement their fiber deployments."" That clearly means higher power Muxes for VDSL, but sounds promising? 'via Blog this'
