How does it push g.fast further? Faster perhaps, but no mention of further.
I can't imagine it goes further. 212MHz spectrum on a phone line, especially in a multi-pair cable? If it were made to Cat5e standards, perhaps, but the existing cable infrastructure isn't. Also as lines are never particularly well balanced, the spectrum pollution into the airwaves is just going to get worse.

By what measure?
It's more widely available and cheaper than most places in Europe, though the peak speeds are low.
Given that most customers, when given the choice, will stick with the cheapest option available rather than the fastest it looks like the right decisions were made.
Surely "former state monopoly" Deutsche Telekom?
