I suspect that after the upgrade more users could then get ADSL2 rather than ADSL2+
That's a rather pointless remark. It equates to saying "I suspect that on an autobahn more cars can do 70mph than can do 140mph".
The field research into using ADSL2 instead of ADSL2+ on longish lines was pioneered by Be/O2 LLU users, (with me as a leading light about it on these forums), in the days before WBC ADSL2+ had even been released.
It only works for a tiny proportion of connections and depends on many factors. A prime one being the way the user modem calculates the average attenuation across the frequency range allied to the flawed way the optimum sync is negotiated on ADSLx circuits.
