Re: Not that big an improvement
Bell Canada rolled out ADSL2+ service to the general public a while ago, offering 7/1 and 16/1 tiers. Unfortunately, wholesalers (as the CRTC (our version of the FCC) requires them to share the DSLAMs) are not yet permitted to use ADSL2+ profiles, only g.dmt.
We're hopeful that the larger wholesalers will be able to offer ADSL2+ services some time this year. Providers that colocate their own DSLAMs in Bell's COs already are able to offer ADSL2+ services in very limited areas, but the only company with decent coverage has an incredibly bad reputation/service quality.
