The last post wins!
My internet provider is one of the two biggest providers in the Netherlands. They're gonna acquire the other one as soon as it gets approved by the proper authorities. They both claim that people don't need bigger uploads, but downloads. They use the bandwidth of 'cable' for television channels, both analogue as digital and HD. If they stop broadcasting analogue tv, there will be more bandwidth for higher uploads, but there are still too much consumers dependent on analogue yet. Mostly elder people.

There is a growing demand for higher uploads but not enough to make it happen in the close future.
Those who switched to FTTH, are complaining about lousy HD quality, but are very satisfied about their internet connection (500/500 is the highest they can get)
And it's not possible to break up the all in one packages to have less tv and higher Internet connections, don't ask me why.. UPC, my cable provider, is very stubborn on that.
