Increase upload speed for cable broadband

This petition had 29 supporters

Telstra offers Home Broadband users on cable default upload speed of 1Mbps. This means that to upload an average image*  it needs about a minute. To upload a standard quality 10 minutes video clip* it may take an hour.

Telstra provides a premium service called Speed Boost at a cost of $20 per month. However, the boost increases the upload speed to 2Mbps only making the offer not worth the money.

I propose Telstra increases the upload speed on their basic plans to 4Mbps and provides a premium option at an additional cost. I propose Telstra provides the users an ability to increase the upload speed by reducing their download speed is the users are willing to sacrifice it


*Assumptions: average image size is 4 Mb, standard quality 10 minutes video clip is 200Mb
