Was just browsing Vodafone's latest offerings in VSDL (out of interest not because I can actually switch), I noticed that they are priced at the same level as the UFB-50 Cable plans. The download speed is potentially less but I note that the upload speed is 5-10Mbps vs 2Mbps on cable. 

Has any thought been given to the UFB-50 having a slightly higher upstream speed given that the "standard" speed cable is 2Mbps as well?

(I note that the UFB-130 plans have a 10Mbps upstream rate. Would be good if the UFB-50 perhaps was upped to 5Mbps as that would place it in the middle like the download rates)

I'm on WarpSpeed 150G and the upload speed is 10Mbit/sec with download 130Mbit/sec.

It would be good. As far as i know its limitation to the DOCSIS technology. Best that i get back to you tomorrow and confirm. But there are no plan changes in speed.
