What does it take to get faster upload speeds?

5 Mpbs upload is annoyingly slow and downright unacceptable in 2020 when having to WFH from further notice. When will Comcast offer faster upload speeds on residential plans?

 

200 Mbps download is enough and I shouldn't have to pay for high-end residential or business service just to have enough bandwidth for 2 people to videoconference with.

 

For reference, I'm able to do 31.8 Mbps up on T-Mobile.

What do you consider an "acceptable" upload speed and a "high end" residential or business plan?

FWIW, the current upstream / return path bandwidth spectrum allocation on DOCSIS is physically limited. It's the nature of the beast. This is why there isn't as much flexibility with offering faster upload speeds compared to the download. Apples and oranges can't be compared.
