That's not strictly true. It's true if the G.fast pod is in the cab, but isn't the entire point of G.fast that they move that pod closer to the premises? In the same vein that your ADSL speed (based on distance to the exchange) was not indicative of your FTTC speed, as the distances are very different, with mostly winners but the occasional loser.
