WinterGreen Research announces the following study: G-fast Chips: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014-2020.

G.fast supports broadband networks. G.fast leverages copper connectiions at the home to communications optical infrastructure in the long haul. Copper infrastructure is used in the last few meters from the distribution box to the home. Fiber has had rapid advance but does not work at the end point, it is too expensive to go all the way the home. FTTH is too expensive and G.fast is positioned as a viable DSL alternative. DSL is set to be replaced at the high end by G.fast. Copper based broadband technologies promise to last for a long long time. Though for many years FTTH has threatened to make xDSL obsolete, this has not proven to be the case

End to end broadband networks leverage a combination of optical infrastructure in the long haul and copper infrastructure in the last few meters from the distribution box to the home. Fiber has had rapid advance but does not work in the end, it is too expensive to the home. FTTH is too expensive and DSL continues to be a viable alternative, with DSL set to be replaced at the high end initially by G.fast. Copper based broadband technologies promise to last for a long long time. Though for many years FTTH has threatened to make xDSL obsolete, this has not proven to be the case. Broadband Internet is used in all corners of the world. It is set to be used by everyone by 2025. There is a lot left to be done. Networking services company Akamai says the second quarter of 2014 marks the first time the global average broadband speed jumped over the 4-megabit mark. South Korea occupies the top broadband user category in both average bandwidth (24.6 megabits) and proportion of the population on a broadband connection (95 percent, tied with Bulgaria). Smaller islands, the Philippines, countries with lots of rural areas, like India, are struggling to deliver useful speeds.

The U.S. falls behind East Asia, ranking somewhere in the middle, with the Nordic countries, in terms of broadband speed and penetration. Inside the U.S., Delaware appears well equipped with broadband — the Mid-Atlantic state ranked first in every category: average speed, peak speed, connectivity and even "4K readiness," referring to the 15 megabit speed that can handle ultra high-def broadcasts. The slowest US state is Arkansas. Copper represents an installed infrastructure worth trillions and too expensive to just replace. Fiber is too expensive to use it to replace all the copper. FTTH DSL and G.fast, the copper works in many cases and does not need to be re3placed. xDSL markets will be strong for some long time to come as copper remains a transport line. G.fast leverages copper infrastructure that is everywhere in the telecommunications network. Copper provide connectivity to all residences. Copper is still the primary wireless backbone transport means, meaning it continues to be vital as new wireless systems continue to expand their markets. It predominates in the local loop, creating demand for systems that are able to support high speed signal transport over copper wire.
