Re: The hardware underneath

The asymmetry is going away thanks to some breakthroughs in self interference cancellation earlier this decade. DOCSIS 3.1 has a full duplex mode that is standardized and will be deployed later this year at up to 5 Gbps symmetric by Comcast or Spectrum (can't remember) Terabit DSL is also symmetric - though it may never see the light of day in the US, since telcos have been unloading their copper to companies who are letting it rot while milking grannies who cling to their landlines.
