Hmm. Have you noticed a significant difference in broadband speeds that depends on the floor of a hotel? I haven't.. but mostly because hotel broadband isn't particularly blazingly fast or anything.

Re: double
Thank you, makes sense. Since it is the last mile, or last few hundred feet, I am guessing signal conditions are usually not too punishing, and Gfast can operate near its optimum,

Re: double
Correct, the total power was maintained, so the power density is lower when using the increased spectrum.  In terms of the SNR, the question is a little more complication.  The Gfast modulation allows the number of bits (constellation size) to be adjusted for each subcarrier.  Part of that adjustment is for the system to "aim" for an average SNRM that was set as the "Target SNRM" by the operator.  So essentially, their allowance for noise is as close or wide as the operator wishes.  But (there's alwyas a but), Gfast also includes SRA and FRA operations, which allows the number of bits to be lowered or increased depending on the changing noise conditions, while the link remains "up" (passing user traffic). The thresholds for htose changes are also under the operator's control. Hope this helps answer the quesiton.

Double the spectrum, but at the same total energy, so presumably a smaller signal to noise ratio, but that's an insignificant because the ratio is still pretty high, or high enough, yes?

That would be great. Sluggish connections could finally be a thing of ye olden days.

It would be great for those future consumers, for sure. I've heard a lot of horror stories about poor performance in multi-unit dwellings.

Re: This is Great...
Fiber will always have a slight advantage over Gfast when it comes to reliability but it will be such a great tool to have for multi-unit dwellings in the future.

I can't help but wonder when you think this will be?

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
