Re: why does most of the broadband internet has slow upload?

But DSL was not widely deployed until around 2000, in fact this site only came about in 1998 as I recall... with a very small user base until again about 2000.

Exactly my point.

ISDN never became mainstream. The Telcos grudging re-purposed DSL to complete with Cable and gave up on ISDN.

OK but actually other than maybe major metro areas Cable HSI was many years behind DSL.

Ironically, I actually had ISDN to my house circa 2000-2001, and used it to get to the Internet. (128 Kbps rocked for Half-Life Deathmatch! Especially when everyone else was on dial-up... )

Getting back on topic, while expensive, ISDN was symmetric at least.

ISDN never became mainstream for CONSUMERS. It was extremely popular and mainstream for business.

And there was also SDSL (same speed up/dn) but doesn't seem to be offered to consumers anymore, though may still be an option for business accounts where there is the seen need for large upload bandwidth for video conferencing, biz file exchange, etc.
