Is there a way of looking up an exchange's capabilities wrt ADSL2 / 2+ / SRA or a good test by looking at detailed router stats?

Is it possible that some DSLAM firmware has been deployed where the designers have selectively implemented just a few of the features of the more recent specs without implementing the whole thing, so being in a sense being in between ADSL standards?

Its how the dslam/msan is configured and set up.
 
All MSANs should be adsl2+ capable,  as are certain DSLAMs such as the Lucent Stingers... so its down to the the owner of the dslam as to which services they wish to provide.

AFAIK theres only Easynet in the UK that configure their DSLAMs to use SRA.
