Nokia has achieved a connection speed of 5Gbps—about 625MB/sec—over 70 metres of conventional twisted-pair copper telephone wire, and 8Gbps over 30 metres. The trial used a relatively new digital subscriber line (DSL) protocol called XG.fast (aka G.fast2).

XG.fast is the probable successor of G.fast, which was successfully trialled in a few countries over the past couple of years and will soon begin to commercially roll out.
