I'm not sure they are rolling it to anything but greenfield developments. In other words, new construction. Have you tried to call and ask? If you request that you speak to an engineer, they'll usually let you. Just be polite and tell them you have a very technical question.

FYI, Northstate is running ADSL2+ which allows for 24Mbps/1.4Mbps per pair. So if they choose to, they could use two pair and deliver 48Mbps/2.8Mbps. I was told by an engineer they are limiting upstream speeds because of the IPTV product. I don't understand enough about ADSL2+ for it to make sense that limiting upstream would help IPTV (downstream delivery), but I'm not a telco engineer.
