Why does the 85046B Testset only go to 2GHZ?

Hi,
Could someone explain to me what it is that reduces the bandwidth of the 75ohm test set  model (85046B from 3GHz ( 85046A) to 2GHZ?  The bridges seem very similar - just different connectors.  Can it be used up to 3GHz with reduced parameters?  Is the B model an A model with 75ohm N connectors and software correction on the VNA?
Can I use it for 50ohm tests with embedding/de-embedding to accommodate virtual min loss pads?

Thanks

Tim
