In five years, the standard broadband speeds has grown from 5Mb in an average home, to 30Mb+ today, with the majority of houses actually reaching speeds of over 100Mb. This is thanks to the continuous upgrades being made to the telecommunications infrastructure to develop quicker, more receptive broadband technology.

What Is G.Fast?
Gfast is a broadband technology that has been gaining popularity among internet service providers and consumers alike. GFast Fibre Broadband is the newest copper-based business broadband, allowing for faster internet speeds and more efficient data transfer, making it a great option for those who need reliable, high-speed internet access. GFast is a further improvement upon Superfast technology, turbocharging your download speed to up to 330 Mbps, through changing the frequencies of the connection. These ultra fast frequencies only work over a short distance, meaning GFast broadband technology can only be offered to businesses and homes close to their serving exchange. Despite this over 2.8 million premises in the UK can still access the GFast Fibre broadband through service providers like BT, EE, Sky and Zen. There are currently no plans to build any more GFast capabilities, with plans to roll out Ultrafast Full Fibre network technology instead.

With 330 Mbps download speed, GFast Broadband is perfect for gaming, 4K streaming and small families. For reference, that’s equivalent to downloading a two hour 4K movie in under six minutes or 100 songs in under 20 seconds.

Overall, gfast is a powerful broadband technology that offers a number of benefits for both internet service providers and consumers. It allows for faster speeds, efficient data transfer, and support for multiple users, making it an ideal option for those who need reliable, high-speed internet access.


Benefits of G.Fast
One of the key advantages of gfast is its ability to deliver high speeds over short distances. This makes it ideal for use in dense urban areas where traditional broadband technologies may not be able to provide the necessary speed and capacity. Gfast is also able to deliver these high speeds over existing copper wires, making it a cost-effective alternative to more expensive fiber optic cables.
Another advantage of gfast is its ability to support multiple users on a single connection. This means that households with multiple devices can all connect to the internet at the same time without experiencing any slowdowns or interruptions. This makes gfast an ideal option for households with multiple devices, such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and smart TVs.
