I will repeat myself, speaking very slowly. Please see original message for

Verizon has eight million FIOS customers. As of last year, Verizon decided
it was worth it to supply all of those customers with symmetric speeds. So,
by your reasoning, people wanted it, so it was sold to them.

Verizon is only one of many fiber-based ISPs selling symmetric speeds.
