Re: Large download speed increase, but upload is terrible.

How is that reasonable? Your upload can be over 15M up like mine but Google will still download from you slowly. Plus, powerboost for uploads only last so long, after a few mins your upload is shitty.

Because of the same reasons why Powerboost was deemed "useful" years ago. Uploading vacation photos and short videos to the myriad social networks would be expedited. As others have pointed out, DOCSIS isn't designed for high upload rates for end users. Guaranteed high uploads aren't going to be a reality for cable networks until they push ftth themselves. Until then, powerboost on uploads is a good way to dynamically allocate free bandwidth where needed for limited amounts of time.
