Re: g.faster
Yeah that was bad wording on my part -- G.fast is referenced as part of the FTTdp architecture, and is certainly not referred to as FTTdp (the two terms are not interchangeable) so thanks for that JB!

To clarify matters I am going to update the sentence that begins

G.fast, also referred to as FTTdp (fiber to the distribution point), is the next weapon in the copper armory....


to say

G.fast, which plays an important role in the FTTdp (fiber to the distribution point) architecture, is the next weapon in the copper armory...

So let's ask the carriers
DT deployed a FTTC solution that was pre-DSL and had to remove it.  There was some small deployment in the SWBT part of AT&T that also had to be pulled out of the ground.

Why not chat with BellSouth folks about their FTTC experience (which is essentially FTTdp from a distance standpoint).  They had a few million lines in service.

FTTdb is not = to g.fast; rather it's the Broadband Forum's architecture that includes g.fast for transport over copper, or access to the subscriber terminal (-ast) over the last 100-300m. And the 1G speed achieved in some field trials is aggregate, e.g. 800 down, 200 up. But yes, there should be more noise about this emerging standard at BBWF.
