Symmetrical Internet in the future?

What is the possibility of fizz offering symmetrical internet in the future? Are the current upload speeds determined by a hardware limitation with the current coax hardware being used?

I am satisfied with the connection stability, no throttling policy and the public IP lease policy with Fizz, but I feel that they should offer at least 200-250 Mbps upload speeds with the 400 Mbps plan. Especially considering the competition that offers FTTH in Montreal at a similar price, but with greater and symmetrical speeds.

    Salut @RandomUsername almost 0, since the cable technology it is asymmetric, in order to be able to have symmetric speed for Fizz it will be change the technology that Videotron is using. At the moment, Videotron is offering 940/50. Moreover, "Yes, Fizz applies traffic management measures, but only from the user to the Internet (upload), and for accesses of 100 Mbps or more (hereinafter called THE ACCESSES*). *Certain conditions (see below)." therefore if you are duing a lot of upload you can be limited https://fizz.ca/en/faq/internet-traffic-management-policy

    In order to be competitive in the market Fizz/Videotron will have to adapt to/deploy new technologies.

    It's not up to Fizz, but to VIdeotron to change the infrastructure if the want to offer higher upload speeds. Unfortunately there's only much that Fizz can do

    You are so right! Fizz is like the little sister of Videotron

    To change the infrastructure it is a huge investment, since it is asymmetric probably the can change the ratio

    But the normal user I am not user that needs more than 50Mbps in upload

    A lot of people working remotely could benefit quite a lot of a symmetrical option though...
