Exactly, now you see the dilemma.  What is reasonable/comparable?  Is it reasonable to assume that users upload as much as they download when every traffic study I have ever done or seen tells me that is not the case?  Is it reasonable for me to allocate my customers to 5M down/5M up when they really mostly use 8.5 down/1.5 up?   I know it would make you happy to build my network so that you can twiddle the upload/download dials but is it reasonable to make all of my customers pay for that infrastructure rather than ask you to buy a more premium business class service if you want that?
