This is a list of very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL) and very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) deployments.

The term VDSL can either refer specifically to ITU-T G.993.1 (first generation VDSL, officially abbreviated as "VDSL", unofficially also called "VDSL1"), or may be used as an umbrella term for both ITU-T G.993.1 and ITU-T G.993.2 (second generation VDSL, officially abbreviated "VDSL2").

Ireland (VDSL2)
  • Current service: OpenEir, the wholesale arm of Ireland's largest telecommunications provider currently provides vectored VDSL2 services offering speeds of up to 100Mbit/s (down) and 20mbit/s (up). The majority of lines are connected to FTTC cabinets. However, due to the topology of the copper network, a small share of lines are also served directly from VDSL2 equipment located in local telephone exchange.
  • Description of service: The network supports multicasting for IPTV services and customers can be provided either with a standalone VDSL2 connection, or VDSL2 bundled with a POTS service. Most ISP's residential gateway devices contain a VoIP ATA which can be used to provide classic telephony services without using the legacy PSTN infrastructure.
  • Physical interface: Each ISP provides its own modem/access gateway, to a standardised network interface specification. New VDSL2 installations require a site visit to install a NTU (Network Termination Unit) - a modular telephone socket with an optional integrated filter which is connected directly to the incoming line, ahead of any other internal wiring. This ensures optimal service by eliminating possible line noise or problematic internal wiring. It also provide a testable, demarcation point between the customer's internal wiring and the OpenEir network - and has an RJ11 test socket behind the face plate. For this reason, unlike ADSL services, self-installation is not available, unless a VDSL2 service was already in place. The filter plate installed on the NTU provides three connection terminals: an unfiltered socket for the VDSL2 modem (RJ45 socket that accepts an RJ11 plug), a filtered RJ11 socket for analogue telephone service and a filtered screw-down wiring terminal, located on the back of the faceplate, where extension sockets can be connected. The socket device also provides a range of wiring options for connecting monitored alarms and other specialist services.
  • VDSL2 providers: As OpenEir is a wholesale provider, ISP services are sold by a wide range of operators including (non-exhaustively): Airwire, BBnet, Digiweb, Eir (retail arm), Fastcom, Host Ireland (Business broadband), IFA Telecom, Invertec, Lightnet, Magnet Networks, Net1, Pure Telecom, Regional Broadband, Ripplecom, Sky Ireland, Telcom, Three Ireland, Viatel, Vodafone Ireland, Westnet and Wireless Connect. (Most provide home and business broadband while some are focused exclusively on the commercial sector.) [54]

United Kingdom (VDSL)

British Telecom and resellers:

  • Openreach, the Access Network delivery arm of BT Group conducted successful trials of VDSL using FTTC technology in the Muswell Hill area of North London. Following this trial national rollout commenced under the banner of NGA (Next Generation Access) starting with selected exchange areas around the UK. The product initially offered downstream bit rates of up to 40 Mbit/s and upstream of up to 10 Mbit/s dependent on the distance between the new DSLAM street-cabinet and the end user's premises, and by late 2012, this had increased to downstream bit rates of up to nearly 80 Mbit/s and upstream of up to 20 Mbit/s.[86] Alongside this, Openreach are conducting additional trials into the deployment of FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) which although more expensive and complex to implement, can provide downstream rates of up to 110 Mbit/s and is thought to be more future-proofed than FTTC. Recently this has been improved to 330 Mbit/s downstream and 30 Mbit/s upstream. Original projections indicated that FTTC was significantly cheaper to implement than FTTP; however, current thinking is that the cost difference between the two technologies may be smaller than first envisaged.
  • As of 2011, the Openreach product is also resold by other ISPs.

The network offers up to 40 Mbit/s downstream and up to 10 Mbit/s upstream with an assured level of service. The infrastructure consists of FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) with sub loop unbundling to provide the last-mile connection to the consumer via existing copper.
