I'm calling total BS on this one

Legacy ADSL technology is simply asymmetric, which is what the A in ADSL stands for. If you want a symmetrical connection there, just control the downstream direction to achieve an SDSL connection. But because home users generally benefit more downstream than upstream, it was decided decades ago that ADSL was a good solution.

With FTTH, the PON implementation is chosen which is also implemented asymmetrically. Here again it is just an effect of the chosen technology. A choice made primarily for a reason of technical cost and not to force professional customers to choose a more expensive font.

And Telenet, with cable? The same. This is also inherent in technology. The Docsis standard simply provides more space downstream than upstream. When there is still analog TV on cable, the upstream is on the frequencies below analog TV while the downstream is on the higher frequencies. 2 guesses where you have the most bandwidth.

Because let's be honest, with 1Gb uplink, you still have enough in many business environments. At our company, a software development company with over 1,000 employees worldwide, we don't even have gigabit Internet. no need. Do you know what companies need? Abundance. Multiple and independent connections, so that if there is an error in one line, you can continue to work quietly. More important to many companies than high loading.

By the way, I don't understand why a small accounting office doesn't need 20Mbit speed. I worked at one of the largest law firms in the world, and some of our branch offices had 20/20 connectivity with only about 20 employees at times. Annoying sometimes, but generally more than adequate.
