It's still getting much less fansubbing/ripping support than Gundam X though. For some reason there are more rips/fansubs of X than G and Turn A, even though the latter two are generally more critically acclaimed... I guess that's what happens when Sunrise does things a bit too differently.

BTW here's an IMO pretty good review of Gundam X which pretty much sums it all up (including possible explanations for its unpopularity in Japan and its good parts):
