Why on earth would it? Why not two other arbitrarily chosen numbers? 55/10 (I refuse to call it 52/10 - 55/10 is the Openreach product) is not a new technology of any sort, it is just another cap on the FTTC product, of which 80/20 is currently the highest cap. I would not be surprised if that became 100/20 at some point in the not-too-distant future, but it has nothing to do with the introduction of the 55/10 product.
