You can replace the modem with a VDSL one, you won't get VDSL though. Getting VDSL requires you to request it with your ISP, the DSLAM configured to give you VDSL, and a technician to wire your house with a master splitter and new jack.

So sure you can put a VDSL modem in now, it will just fall back to ADSL2+ though. Also, not worth getting VDSL installed, May is in 15 days.
