24Mb ADSL2/2+ 21CN

Are BT still upgrading exchanges to adsl2+?

Or are they just rolling out FTTC now?

If they are not rolling out ADSL2 anymore then what chance do people in small towns/villages stand at getting faster than 8mb broadband?

Don't hold your breath; my exchange has been ADSL2+ / 21CN for over a year, but BT won't 'upgrade' me to ADSL2+. I even took part in the beta program, so i know that there are benefits. I only want the enhanced upload speed; that's not too much too ask is it? As a 'village' user, I get very frustrated with the constant whinging from Infinity customers who complain about only getting 12Mb; FYI, I pay the same as everybody else, but get 3Mb at best.

Sorry for the rant, but I feel that BT is completely ignoring the customers on long lines, whilst giving the people with reasonable speed even faster speeds.
