Will FTTC Become Derestricted Like ADSL2+

[link to this post]
I was just thinking after going through the fibre forums that some users have an attainable download speed of about 120meg and upload of around 35meg in their sigs.

Is there any chance of BT derestricting the speeds when their rollout of FTTC is done?

Just wondering...

[re: robvxr] [link to this post]
Anything is possible, but suspect they will stick to the 80Meg for 2 to 3 years, and then deploy vectoring to go faster.

The gap between 80 and the absolute maximum of VDSL2 means that the line length issues of DSL based services are better with FTTC than previous DSL rollouts
