Why does Xfinity Usually Not List Upload Speed? And why speeds so much slower?

For many of us, upload speed (such as uploading photos and videos) is as important if not MORE important than download speed.  The actual useful benefits between a 75 mbps connection and a 250 mbps connection for typical streaming and downloading is negligible as you can stream HD video at both speeds no problem. 

 

However the difference between an upload speed of 5 and 15 mbps is HUGE as if you have several gigabytes of photos/videos to upload that could mean the difference between it takes to upload between 5 hours and 15 hours!

 

So it completely baffles me why Xfinity has decided to leave the upload speed specs off of most if not all their web pages when one shops on their website for Internet services, especially considering most services download speeds are more than adequate making the upload speeds more important.
