What they actually do for very long lines is put people on ADSL1 on 21CN. Once on 21CN changing between ADSL1 and ADSL2/ADSL2+ doesn't require rewiring and is a simple order Plusnet will quite happily give a different mode a go if it looks like it would be better. I'd think they'd only order ADSL1 at the outset if the speed prediction was really low, say around 1MB.
