Long live the copper pair: Alcatel-Lucent achieves …

July 11, 2014

A promising technology known as G.Fast wanted to revitalize the traditional copper pair easily achieving speeds of several hundred Mbps with medium distances to the exchange (more than 100 meters).

Although the first tests in real situations are supposed to begin in 2015, Alcatel-Lucent is already experimenting with what could be the second version of this technology, which they have dubbed XG-FAST.

And what does it offer? Well, nothing less than speeds of up to 10,000 Mbps over the traditional copper pair that we all have at home and using frequency ranges of 500 MHz.

The problem? Well, the classic of copper: the further away from the central, the slower the speed reaches our homes.
