Real life performance will be around 232-235kB/s due to the synch rate on 2Mbit being less than half that of 1Mbit (1MBit synch rate downstream 1152kbit, 2Mbit synch rate 2272kbit)

There is no 'trade off' made at all, one can't swap upstream speed for downstream speed. Upstream speed on the BT RADSL 512k service is reduced if the line is too close to failing due to poor signal to noise ratio, the downstream signal takes up some space occupied by the upstream to keep the line up. You CANNOT swap upstream for a higher downstream, all BT ADSL products are locked at your max downstream.

Those of you that have jumped from one Adsl provider to another Adsl provider will know just how long it does/can take & the problems that can arise from jumping from Adsl isp to Adsl isp.
The MAC (Migration Authorisation Code) system is now the standard method of migrating between DSL ISPs. Basically it's a code good for 30 days that signifies your current ISP is permitting you to migrate.

Either way (as I said), does it really matter?

Surely the important thing is that more people can get DSL than ever before?

You would probably have pointed out that it were a management issue rather than a technical one had it been ntl doing this so just mentioned this was BT being bloody minded and penny pinching, and now it serves their purpose to get as many people onto DSL as possible they suddenly find these less strict limits are quite acceptable where they weren't before
