Gigabit glitter. GFast, Vectoring, etcetera are great as long as you have FTTx to within 30 meters wireline twisted pair distance of the premises. So a company is going to go from 3000 meters to 30 meters of fiber optic distance and just stop? Hardly. Soon enough they will be going from 3000 to 3. Just a 10 foot length of twisted pair.

Gig Most ISPs have rather mastered the practice of advertising limited gig deployments in such a way as to make them appear dramatically larger than they actually are. That said, I've seen several studies now indicating that even this marketing can drive adoption of slower tiers, since most users have no idea what speed they have -- and see these ads as a reminder to check.
