Asked a simple question, gave a simple answer. Still true... never said it was "right" (that's the way cable ISPs are & have always been).
Now, if you want to see it done "right", then look at Google Fiber.
Except ISPs are increasing their upstream speeds and they would not do that if practically no one used the bandwidth.
Well of course Google Fiber is the way to do things right, but we live in North America. So it is unlikely that would happen in most areas. I could only dream of the sane people of the world would rise up to ensure North America has decent Internet connections pretty much everywhere. That would make too much sense though.
