It is hard to tell without installing but you could ask your neighbours, that should at least give you a representative result for your street.

2 phone lines are needed.

7Mbps or greater ADSL connection via ADSL Max

I am currently on a adsl service but which providers support adsl2 ?

Unlike with ADSL Max where either your exchange has it or not the situation for ADSL2+ is a little more complicated as it can both be provided over the old BT network (21CN WBC) or one of the 'LLU' providers can offer it so whether you can get it from a certain ISP depends on whether the provider/network they're using supports ADSL2+ at your exchange.

Most ISPs offer it these days though.
