VM has announced that 1Gbps will be available to all by 2021, but it's hard to see that happening. DOCSIS 3.1 needs a new hub and its rollout will cause some problems no matter how good it is. VM managers should shudder at the thought of their call centres, already unable to properly deal with existing problems, having to pacify some customers who cannot understand why they have a fault which happened at about the same time as their new hub was installed.

What we will see is something like Project Lightning whose objective gets pushed into the future.

There's a stark difference between everyone having 1Gbps and it being available to them

I think you are right. I was so sure I had 50mbits back in 2006 but now I come to think of it I think I was on 1.5mbits as I finished uni which was in 2003, and if you say for the sake of argument we got upgraded every year, I then had 3mbits in 2004, 10mbits in 2005 and 20mbits in 2006 so 2008 probably is right although I didn't think it was that late. I thought I had 100mbits before 2011 but I have just found two posts which I got a big telling off for :p
