Not with BT.
EE on a 40/10 package.
As well as a Bright Box 2, EE included two VDSL dongles, all of which arrived before the upgrade.
On upgrade day, I spotted the van at the PCP and went across, heard the confirmation that he had found the right pairs - temporary test phone. dialled 17070 etc.
About 5 minutes to make the wiring changes in the PCP, back to the house.
Swapped from the old BB 1 (ADSL) to the BB2 (VDSL) changed the dongle, powered up etc.
Took about 5 minutes of "hand-shaking", then full contact etc.
Ancient NTE, simple connections, not a filtered faceplate.
Although the FTTC is only 10 Metres from the front door, and the PCP is about 40 Metres away, the "D"-side phone line from the PCP wanders about 250 M virtually all underground before surfacing at the front door, with additional 50 M from the PCP to the FTTC, so 300 M total.
Almost consistently around 37 Mbps Down and about 9 Mbps Up, on that 40/10 contract, since June 2014.
I have made minor changes to the internal phone etc wiring a few months back, nothing dramatic.
A proper 10 M cable from that ancient NTE to the BB2 Router/Modem, rather than the previous higgledy- piggledy, grown like topsy, internal wiring, moving a VDSL dongle down to the NTE; with the other phone wiring connected to the filtered PHONE side of that dongle - the VDSL/Broadband side being of course, the standard straight-through, ie unfiltered.
Gave a very slight improvement on the Down side, from hovering just below 37 Mbps, to now hovering just above 37 Mbps, typically.
