Broadband boost: G.fast testing lab, consortium to foster 100G over copper

21. Oktober 2014
The story, "Broadband boost: G.fast testing lab, consortium to foster 100G over copper," posted Tuesday, contained an error in the headline and third paragraph.

The technology supports 1Gbps speeds. The headline has been changed to: Broadband boost: G.fast testing lab, consortium to foster 1G over copper.

The third paragraph has been changed in the story on the wire and now reads:

G.fast refers to the emerging ITU standards for digital subscriber line technology that would support up to 1Gbps speeds for local copper loops shorter than 820 feet, giving service providers a potentially cheaper alternative to fiber for connecting into businesses and homes that are consuming and creating ever more bandwidth-greedy content. G.fast, which could be ratified as a standard by year-end, would blow by VDSL2 technology, which handles speeds of up to a few hundred Mbps, albeit on longer loops than G.fast will support.
