First G.fast products in our broadband provider listings
G.fast in the UK is not the same as G.fast in other countries as to ensure that the roll-out can go from almost zero in 2016 to ten million premises by 2020 Openreach is deploying the service by pods located at existing street cabinets that have a VDSL2 twin.
The roll-out which is in a misty area of transitioning between trial and live service is available to some 42,500 premises based on our reckoning and Openreach has stated 100,000 premises passed, but as we are not going out of our way to find the G.fast pods that are live we expect our tracking to behind what the operator is stating. The technology filtering in our postcode and package search is not fully aware of G.fast just yet but the advanced filtering search will let you filter down to G.fast packages as of today.
Cerberus also are one of a handful of broadband providers retailing the fibre on demand service (FoD) from Openreach and with activation starting at £1200+VAT and a monthly cost of £165+VAT it is very much for those who have a clear need. NOTE: The activation fee is distance based and can be £10,000 or more in some circumstances and with a 36 month contract it is very much a business or home worker solution. While mentioning FoD the other providers worth mentioning are FluidOne and for those in Wales Spectrum Internet.
