Does anyone know when / if the 1Gig service will be rolled out to the rest of Southampton, or whether it's only gonig to be the centre?

Yes, the downstream will run on DOCSIS 3.1 but the upstream will stay on DOCSIS 3.0 This is how lots of cable companies are doing it so there must be technical reasons.

As DOCSIS 3.0 can easily provide 52Mbps upload there's no need to go to 3.1, and 3.1 is fully backward compatible with 3.0.
