Why? The only users likely to see any significant improvement will be those already getting near an 80/20 sync. In the 70's there will be some and I would guess that anyone currently getting 60 will a minimal improvement.
So, a large expense for BT in testing and rolling out firmware upgrade for no returns.
And why is it needed? 80/20 is adequate for almost every residential and small business installation. Any business that can justify a faster connection should be looking at non-VDSL solutions.
