According to ADSL2+ doubles 
downstream bandwidth (up to 24Mb/s) but seems to leave upstream at about 

So we are further pushed from net citizen to net consumer.  Bad for 
society, in my mind.

Apparently one point for Bell's upgrade is to make TV over ADSL2+ more 
practical.  At least that has a slight potential for the good: more 
duopoly replacing monopoly.

The Wikipedia entry says about Bell Sympatico that ADSL2+ will expand to 
most of the DSL service area this year.
