High upload business internet apparently doesn't exist.

Or does it? Web hosts must get their internet from somewhere, so why is it impossible to find?

I'm running a server from home (probably more in the future, but starting out small with a dedicated game server) and need to find a new ISP with a business plan with high upload speeds. (Talking somewhere around 20-50mbps up and down.) I'm finding a lot of plans along the lines of 100down/5up, but that doesn't even make sense. Verizon's FiOS Quantum is the only thing that's even remotely reasonable, but it's not available in my area. (Small town in southern Oregon.)

I've been searching for two days straight, and have essentially found nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like you're looking for a commercial grade ISP, however be prepared for a significant price difference compared to "consumer grade" e.g. FiOS, U-verse, DSL/Cable broadband.

Check out AT&T's business plans, Verizon has the same thing. If it's available, Megapath has 45mbps symmetric (T3 connection) to most places in the US. If you need more, there are fiber companies that will lease you as much bandwidth as you need. There's a company called Zayo that has a nationwide fiber network. Just start googling and you'll find something, but for ease of access, AT&T and Verizon have massive backbone networks and are more than willing to sell you ethernet or SONET links if you're willing to pay for them.
