?The company's current symmetrical 35 Mbps tier will soon see a dramatic bump to 75 Mbps downstream and 35 Mbps upstream."

Yes the current tier is advertised as symetrical(although it's really 43/35) but it doesn't mention the new tier being symetrical.

then not really symmetrical. Surprised this website isn't calling for false advertising.

Re: Karl,- symmetrical???

What tha... the 35/35 plan is symetrical, it's moving to 75/35 - which is then not symmetrical anymore. Mentioning it at the first point was only to say that's what they are known as now. The post didn't say they were going to be "symmetrical" at 75/35!

Here since you can't read:

It says "current symmetrical" but at the end it doesn't say anything about symmetrical which therefore one shouldn't assume it is!

Eh, don't worry. It will be 75/75 before too long.
