If I could mod you up, I would. You hit it dead on. The only counterargument I see to this though is that you still have the
chicken/egg problem if 25/3 is available and most people aren't willing to pay extra for it because they just don't need it.
On, a bit of a side note, as you mentioned yourself, the upload speed still sucks. Why 25/3? That's actually a worse
ratio that the current 4/1. If we really want new and interesting cloud services then upload and download should be matched.
Given the choice, I would take 10/10 or even 10/5 over 25/3. 10/10 would allow much more interactive cloud services than
Actually, An even better solution is make it a pipe and give them 10M, 20M, etc... and don't let them hide a crappy upload
speed in the fine print. If they say it's 4M, it should be 4M whether that's 100% upload or 100% download. My 100M
ethernet doesn't have a different speed for a different direction and neither should my internet.
