Where do you live?

We are at least 50 years away from that in the UK.

Not even remotely true

Between Virgin Media rolling out DOCSIS 3.1 on it's network, BT/Openreach's Full Fibre buildout now at just over 4m homes and the various full fibre 'altnets' that have popped up over the last few years, just over 39% of UK homes now have access to Gigabit capable services

As for internet in the UK, i'm on the Openreach G.Fast FTTP Fibre network, so (although asyncronous) i'm getting 900mbps/150mbps (Down/Up) from BT.
G.Fast and FTTP are two entirely different technologies.

G.Fast is a hybrid fibre/copper technology that's really just an extension/evolution of VDSL/FTTC and therefore only offers maximum speeds of 330/50Mbps, and at very short distances from the cabinet, with the speed dropping off fairly sharply over distance

FTTP being full fibre is capable of Gigabit and beyond
