Re: Erm...

The problem is that if you're more than about 800m from the cabinet then VDSL slows down to similar speeds to ADSL2+

Actually it slows down to worse speeds. I'm not sure why this is (split frequency ranges for up and down perhaps?). But beyond a certain point you're better off on ADSL than VDSL. BT are trialling something called 'Long Reach VDSL' which might address this.
