so this will be a firmware upgrade?
still, that doesn't mean cable companies are going to offer faster upload speeds. they are unlikely to offer symmetric broadband any time soon, but they could easily double or triple current speeds offered on mid-tier & low tier plans.
50/8 offered by cablevision could easily match 50/20 (by Verizon) with upstream bonding... bit for bit under docsis 3.1
No, this will be a network upgrade. They would have to hit every active device in the network and change the diplex filter on top of devices in the head end.
Also, symmetric broadband isnt needed by 99% of users. Very very few people need to upload THAT much data from a home, residential account.
