Broadband World Forum 2015: Sweating copper in the age of the gigabit

The age of the gigabit network connection is here, thanks to G.Fast technology

  • Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

“Gigabit is a reality” was a key message at the Broadband World Forum. Developments in technology and deployment are bringing high speed connections to millions. And in countries working with legacy networks, that means squeezing everything possible out of existing copper assets. BT’s Tim Whitley talks about BT and Alcatel-Lucent’s successful G.Fast trials, and delegates from Accenture, Adtran and ASSIA talk about the future of broadband when speed is no longer the driving force.
