Announced speed of 225/60 Mbps: G.Fast or not?

Hi all,

 

Sorry for cross-posting here but I didn't get any relevant answer to my questions in the French forum. I hope I'll have a better luck here.

 

After more than 7 years using CATV, I'm switching to DSL to have a faster upload. The checker announces 225/60 Mbps for my location. I'm going to use a bridge modem and I wanted to buy a G.Fast model because it seemed to me that with VDSL2 the profiles were only up to 200 Mbps. Therefore I concluded that my line would be using G.Fast. Other addresses in my neighborhood have speeds up to 400/100.

 

My line will be activated on January 11th but I already received my hardware (Wingo) but no G.Fast SFP. I contacted the support and they told me that my line doesn't support G.Fast!?

 

I'm a bit surprised. Is this really the case? Is it possible to get 225/60 (or even 400/100 elsewhere in the neighborhood) without G.Fast?

My line has been activated on January 11th and I can confirm it is running G.Fast. My modem (Draytek Vigor166) synchonizes at around 450/95 Mbps (much more than the 225/60 announced by the checker).

Let me rephrase:

 

Has anyone a DSL speed of 225/60 Mbit/s or higher without being on G.Fast?

 

Thank you
