Total Telecom are conducting our annual User Survey and your opinion is the most important. Before we get carried away, let us explain; when a media owner like Total Telecom asks for your opinion, it's very easy to ignore it and let someone else complete the survey, but the reality is we conduct this research to try to create better products, one's that you and your colleagues get value from, and the only way we can do this is by understanding what YOU want and need.
So please take five minutes to help us achieve this. the survey is short and should give us some more insight into what we should be writing about, how we should be presenting it, and what other events and solutions we should offer to help you do your job better.
All the information will be treated in confidence and the results used only in aggregate, unless you have specifically asked for more information. The more responses we get, the better the result, so please feel free to share with your colleagues, on social networks, the company intranet etc...
The survey should not take more than 5 minutes to complete, and can be found on the Survey Monkey platform at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HXJXY6K
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
p.s. don't forget - your opinion matters most!

G.fast has the green light but are you making the most of it?
In December the International Telecommunications Union ratified G.fast and certification is rumoured to be scheduled for the autumn. But is the telecoms community moving fast enough to take advantage of this technology?
Here are just some of the most innovative companies utilising G.fast technology.
The Israeli start-up founded to focus on G.fast technology is the current leader in this field. They have been working with many ODMs and service providers to accelerate the growing demand for G.fast technology.
And at International CES 2015, Sckipio demonstrated the first demo of ultra high definition television using G.fast technology over a G.fast broadband network.
With the launching of its G.fast product by the second quarter of 2015 ADTRAN is taking G.fast from concept to reality. ADTRAN and G.fast are particularly active in Europe due to the difficulty of deploying all-fibre networks in part of Europe and telcos in the region are incredibly eager to utilise the technology and ADTRAN are making the most of the demand.
Broadcom have revealed a G.fast chipset family and G.fast capabilities for its gateway system on a chip. Providing the highest density approach for end-to-end G.fast equipment design.
As one of the first vendors to launch G.fast deployments, Broadcom has already made some vital ground in this relatively unknown market.
Alcatel-Lucent’s ultra-broadband G.fast solution is set to become available early this year and will allow operators to provide their subscribers with much faster internet services. This means that operators can get fibre-like speeds over copper and rolled out to as many people as possible.
Alcatel-Lucent continue to push the boundaries further, as their Bell Labs has most recently demonstrated the capabilities of XG-FAST, extending the possibilities of copper even further.
Huawei and BT
One of the biggest waves in G.fast technology came when Huawei and BT trialled G.fast in a UK residential community. Whilst the trial encountered difficulties, there is no doubt that it accelerated the commercialisation of G.fast and brought us to where we are now.
These are just some of the key innovators utilising G.fast technology and these innovations will be discussed at Gigabit Copper conference 25th March, Sheraton Munich Arabellapark, Munich. The place where we can explore a variety of DSL technologies, provide a platform to understand the most appropriate places for roll out and discuss the future business model once G.fast has been deployed.
