    German ADSL services work on generally faster sync rates and higher frequency carrier. Germany is rapidly deploying ADSL2+ and VDSL services, too. It's unlikely British equipment will work on German ADSL circuits, and no chance on VDSL lines. http://www.mysme.de/index.php?module=pagemaster&PA...

    ADSL2 or ADSL2+ is rapidly becoming the standard in most European countries: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADSL2%2B

    Note that the UK is in the list, but deployments are just starting in the BT network. It's unlikely you would have an ADSL2+ modem from a UK supplier yet.
